I've got 11.10 and have fully updated it but the option to upgrade to 12.04 just isn't coming up. I even tried to update via terminal. Do I have to change something? (I'm fairly new to Ubuntu/Linux)

To upgrade, just press Ctrl+Alt+T on your keyboard to open Terminal. When it opens, run the commands below.

sudo apt-get update && apt-get upgrade 

sudo apt-get install update-manager-core

sudo do-release-upgrade
