How do I upgrade from 12.10 to 13.04? [duplicate]

1

Now, an upgrade from Ubuntu 12.10 Quantal Quetzal to Ubuntu 13.04 Raring Ringtail is possible, but it is not recommended because the new Ubuntu 13.04 is an Alpha Testing version.

However, if you want to do this system upgrade, do it at your own risk!

1. The easiest way to update from 12.10 to 13.04, just open the terminal and type this:

$ sudo do-release-upgrade

2. Another method to upgrade from 12.10 to 13.04, harder than the first one listed, is to modify the /etc/apt/sources.list for 13.04 and update the system, like this:

$ sudo sed -i 's/quantal/raring/' /etc/apt/sources.list
$ sudo apt-get update && apt-get dist-upgrade

3. The hardest way is to download the .iso image from here: http://cdimage.ubuntu.com/daily-live/current/, put it on a stick or dvd and install it, by hand.

I recommend using the first method if you really want to test the new Ubuntu Raring Ringtail, because it is the easiest. If you are new to Ubuntu...

Ubuntu 13.04 has been released on 25th last month, it is available for upgrade and clean installation. Here is the small guide to perform Ubuntu up-gradation. Ubuntu releases major version’s every six month, keeping the machine updated will allow to explore new features.

Before doing update, we need to focus on some prerequisite.

Backup config files. Backup log files. Backup databases. Backup customized scripts. Backup other important files.

Open Terminal.

Update the repositories.

Update Ubuntu 12.10 with its latest packages.

Reboot.

Upgrade to Ubuntu 13.04.

On completion, you will be prompted to reboot your computer to take a effect of installation.

Check your version.

That’s...

I got the same “You may not install to this volume because the computer is missing a firmware partition.”

message when I tried to upgrade a 10.12 Sierra guest to 10.13 High Sierra on a 10.12.6 host.

(I also got the message trying to create a new install 10.13 guest.)

Previously I had never done a 10.13 install or upgrade on the host.

After doing a 10.13 install from the host to an external drive, I shut down, disconnected the external drive, rebooted back to my normal 10.12.6 install.

After that, the 10.13 upgrade in the guest worked fine.

Based on minimal testing, the 10.13 guest seems to be working fine under 10.12.6.

This was all under VMware Fusion Pro...

Upgrading to Ubuntu 13.04 (Raring Ringtail) from Ubuntu 12.10 (Quantal Quetzal) via Software Updater is now possible. All you have to do is press Ctrl + F2 on your keyboard then type the command update-manager –d.

This will bring Software Updater with a upgrade alert that Ubuntu 13.04 is now available to upgrade to. If I were you, I wouldn’t do it just now as 13.04 is still in beta or alpha phase which means, it’s not fully stable and may contain bugs and other issues.

With that said, you can go ahead and upgrade your system if you want. You can try the upgrade on a test machine instead of a production system. If something goes wrong, you can always start over without losing important data.

Enhance your coding experience with this split keyboard that offers up to 9" of separation.

This brief tutorial is going to show you how to perform the upgrade in Ubuntu 12.10.

To get started, you’ll want to first update your system. To do that, press Ctrl –...

Yeah that's right, Ubuntu 12.10 is now upgradable to latest Ubuntu 13.04 "Raring Ringtail" release. And Ubuntu 13.04 is pretty stable for a beta-quality OS, though I still won't/can't recommend it for production machines. I have been using it in my netbook from the early alpha releases and it has come together pretty nicely. It is even a little more snappier already than all the previous releases. More on that later. Right now, here is what you need to do to upgrade Ubuntu 12.10 to Ubuntu 13.04 "Raring Ringtail".


[How-to] Upgrade to Ubuntu 13.04 from Ubuntu 12.10 in a few easy steps!
Firstly, make sure that your Ubuntu 12.10 system is up-to-date. Check for updates in the Update Manager if any and install them all. Hit ALT + F2 and run the following command. update-manager -dThe system will check for updates and will show you the following prompt. Software Updater will take you through the steps further. When the upgrade is complete, Ubuntu will automatically...

According to a top question on Ask Ubuntu, Ubuntu only supports upgrading from one version to the next version, or from one LTS version to the next LTS version.

Because 12.10 isn't an LTS (long term support) version, the only way you can upgrade is 12.10 -> 13.04 -> 13.10 -> 14.04 LTS. Therefore, you need two intermediate versions.

However, with a little bit of Linux experience, any way of upgrading/downgrading between different dpkg-based systems is possible and can be done relative easily. Even an Ubuntu to Debian conversion or suchlike isn't really hard with some well directed apt-get install commands, but these are untested.

The paths supported by Ubuntu are better only because they are well tested. This is because it is of significant importance that an upgrade must be able to happen seamlessly and without any pain even for inexperienced...

I just performed an upgrade of my Kubuntu installation from 12.10 to 13.04 and had problems with the starting KDE seesion: it wasn’t able to bring up dbus, asked if I were able to call qdbus and quit afterwards.

A short test on the command line calling qdbus brought up a strange error: the binary was there and could be called, but looked for another binary called qdbus in /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/qt4/bin/qdbus which wasn’t there. However, there was a binary called /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/qt4/bin/qdbus, and thus I realized that the i386 version of qdbus was installed, rather than the x86_64 version I needed. Thus the fix was easy:

The i386 version was automatically removed, the x86_64 bit version was installed, and KDE was able to start up...

This question already has an answer here:

I've seen these Upgrade Notes which say that the only upgrade path from 9.04 is to 9.10. And the same notes say that the only upgrade path from 9.10 is 10.04, and so on. It seems that I would need to perform at least 5 upgrades in order to turn a 9.04 installation into a 13.04 -- I hope I misunderstood something!

Given that I have a 9.04 installation that I want to move to the newest version, what's my best course of action? There isn't a lot of stuff on the machine right now, and data is backed up.

What happens to the current installation if I simply pop in a 13.04 CD and just install that?

Finally, if it really is better to wipe the machine and start from scratch, how can I best keep track of (or even preserve!) the installed apps, settings, and so on? Everything except user data itself which is backed up.

If you simply pop the 13.04 it might end up with mismatching libs and many configuration files...

I wanted to keep my existing configuration and programs on my Cubieboard2 with Linaro Lubuntu, but at the same I wanted to upgrade the packages since the Lubuntu 12.10 is quite outdated. This post describes my steps to upgrade my Cubieboard2 to the newer version, which can be done in 3 steps:

When you’re first starting out with Ubuntu, it makes sense to start out with the version that is most stable and that offers the greatest level of support. This is precisely why when you visit the Ubuntu website, you are encouraged to download version 12.04 LTS, with LTS standing for Long Term Support. But if you want to have access to all of the latest features, you’re going to have to look to version 13.04.

If you have Ubuntu 12.04 installed, you probably don’t relish the thought of wiping your hard drive and installing the operating system from scratch; luckily there is no need to do so. Here is the way to upgrade your Ubuntu from 12.04 LTS to 13.04 (or future releases)

Note: You won’t be able to upgrade directly from 12.04 LTS to 13.04 (unless you reinstall the OS). You will have to first upgrade to 12.10, then further upgrade to 13.04.

Ubuntu has an update checking feature that can be used to ensure that all of your installed apps are up to date as well as...

Hi @rt9.

If the reason for the upgrade is to secure your bash installation, you can follow the instructions that Beltran provided before in:

But update Ubuntu is also possible. If you want to update Ubuntu anyway, please, remember to backup your stack and important files before, just in case something go wrong. In the following link it is explained how to do a full backup of your stack:

http://wiki.bitnami.com/Native_Installers_Quick_Start_Guide#How_can_I_create_a_full_backup_of_a_Stack.3f

Then, to update Ubuntu, simply follow the instructions provided here: https://help.ubuntu.com/12.04/serverguide/installing-upgrading.html

Please, let me know if this helps.

Best...

Last year I’ve bought a new desktop computer and on this one I’ve moved from Ubuntu to Mint as “Home distribution”, but I still have as backup PC an old laptop with Ubuntu, and some days ago I’ve updated it from Xubuntu 12.10 to 13.04, these are my observations about this new release of Ubuntu.

First: I’ve heard that Unity has improved in this release, but I really don’t like this Desktop Environment and so I’ll only talk about Xubuntu, so Ubuntu 13.04 with XFCE, one of my favorite DE for GNU/Linux along Fluxbox, Openbox and Cinnamon (in this order).

So let’s see how to upgrade and what’s new in this release of Xubuntu.

How to update Xubuntu from 12.10 to 13.04

This time I’ve had no problem at all with the upgrade process from the previous release, but before doing it please read the official guide as a failed upgrade could damage your installation and make it impossible to boot.

Perhaps you are thinking about upgrading or not to...
