I want to upgrade to 13.04 beta, but I don't want to upgrade through the terminal as I can't download 700mb from home, but I can download an ISO image from where I go to school. Is it possible?

This question was marked as an exact duplicate of an existing question.

Yes it is very possible and I would do it except my computer is too old.
I think you might be able to just download the ISO and put it on a USB via UNetBootin/Startup Disk Creator (the unpacked image is now too large for most CDs) and then boot the ISO from the USB drive.
I believe the startup disk will recognize you have a lower version installed and give you the option of upgrading from the disk.

Best of luck!
