What is the error you are getting? – devav2 Nov 7 '12 at 10:27

Have you tried going into settings and changing the value for when to look for distro upgrades? by default I think it's set you only look for long term updates, you need to change this to "For Any Version"

So -

Update Manager > Setting > change "Notify Me Of A New Ubuntu Version" to "For All Versions"

How this will help you?
