I've tried searching for both the Update manager and the Software Manager and all I can find is the Synaptic Package Manager, which wont help me update to 13.04 of Ubuntu. I've tried looking around but they're nowhere to be seen. I'm using version 12.10 of Ubuntu.

EDIT:I also cannot do any shortcut commands for some reason other than copy, paste, and those. The "windows key" does nothing as well as ctrl-alt-t. I replaced the update-manager with software-manager and it ran! thank you!

You should be able to find it in the dash by searching for it. If not press CTRL+ALT+T to open a terminal and try update-manager if it still does not open edit your question to include the output from apt-cache policy update-manager –  Warren Hill Oct 5 '13 at 12:12
