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.
