  • First you have to upgrade to 12.10 then you can upgrade to 13.04, then you could move to 13.10 (dev version)
  • If sudo do-release-upgrade is not working you could use the Debian method, but it is not recommended – it can break your install. I have used it twice for 12.10 to 13.04 with no issues, but your mileage may vary.

 

  1. Use this to upgrade from Precise to Quantal
    sudo sed -i "s/precise/quantal/" /etc/apt/sources.list
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get dist-upgrade`
  2. Then, use this to upgrade from Quantal to Raring
    sudo sed -i "s/quantal/raring/" /etc/apt/sources.list
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
    
  3. Then, use this to upgrade from Raring to Saucy
    sudo sed -i "s/raring/saucy/" /etc/apt/sources.list
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
