    Can't upgrade to 12.10 from Update Manager or terminal (cur 12.04)

    Hi, I recently installed Ubuntu from an old LiveCD I had and successfully upgraded to 12.04 LTS via Update Manager.

    I can't, however, seem to update to anything beyond that. I open Update Manager and see that there 12.10 is available, click "Upgrade," enter my password and click OK. Update Manager then closes and nothing happens.

    I've also gone into Terminal and entered

    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
    and get these results:

    apt-get dist-upgrade doesn't upgrade automatically to newer release. Try
    sudo do-release-upgrade
