How to Upgrade to Ubuntu 13.10

I am at the point where I am considering upgrading to Saucy (Ubuntu 13.10) on one of my two dual-boots.  I am debating how much breakage I can stand this early in the cycle.  😉  Anyway, here are the instructions for the courageous:

To upgrade from Ubuntu 13.04 to 13.10 on a desktop system:

The instructions say to first open up Software Sources.

Then, you need to press Alt + F2 and type in “update-manager -d” (without the quotes).

Update Manager should open up and tell you: New distribution release ‘13.10’ is available.

Then, just click on “Upgrade” and follow the on-screen instructions.

Users of other Ubuntu releases need to upgrade first to 12.04, and then to 13.10.


Ubuntu 13.10 isos can be downloaded from: (Ubuntu Desktop and Server) (Ubuntu Cloud Server) (Ubuntu Netboot) (Ubuntu Core) (Edubuntu DVD) (Kubuntu) (Lubuntu) (Ubuntu Studio) (Ubuntu-GNOME) (UbuntuKylin) (Xubuntu)

    I’m not that brave yet. Let us know how 13.10 works and any practical advantages over 13.04.

      I haven’t dared yet, either. The flavors only recently went to Alpha 1. However, I am seriously thinking about it. I saved the “production” files to my thumb drive. 😉
