No facility exists in Update Manager (12.04) to upgrade to 12.10. Why?

I followed the guide on the website to upgrade distributions. I was not effective at doing this, however, update manager doesn't give me the option to download the new release. I'm not very effective at creating and implementing terminal commands.

If someone could show me which commands to copy and paste into terminal in the form of a step-by-step guide, that would be greatly appreciated.

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

In Software Sources (via System Settings...) under the tab Updates check that upgrades are not restricted to Long Term Support Ubuntu Versions

Cool, thanks :) – Nicky Nov 25 '12 at 1:37

Given the 11.10 tag, I'm assuming you're using 11.10. You cannot upgrade directly from 11.10 to 12.10, but must first upgrade to 12.04 LTS.
