Updating to Ubuntu 12.10

Updating to the next version of Ubuntu is really easy – just type update-manager -d

That is, if you haven’t got a setting that only lets you upgrade to LTS (Long Term Support) releases – which if you’re running Ubuntu 12.04 (Precise Pangolin), you probably do.

Solution: open the Software Centre, then go to Edit… Software Sources. On the Updates tab change “Notify me of a new Ubuntu version” to “For and version” and close it all down. Run update-manager -d and it should be all easy from there!
