When I try to upgrade to 12.10 I get the standard screen offering the upgrade,
then the welcome to Ubuntu 12.10 Quantal Quetzal screen
then when I accept that two files are loaded called the Ubuntu Upgrade Tool
then no further action.
Why won't the full upgrade initiate? Note the PC has been fully updated in 12.04 and restarted.

Have you tried using the following command from terminal?


Make sure you set Prompt to normal instead of lts in /etc/update-manager/release-upgrades
