If you want to update Ubuntu, all you have to do is type do-release-upgrade in the terminal. – Joren Oct 22 '13 at 13:31

Yes of course! You can do this. Follow these steps

  • Create a LiveCD or Live USB as you would normally do.
  • Start the installation from the media created.
  • At the installation type screen in the installer, select "Upgrade from Ubuntu 13.04"

This will upgrade Ubuntu to 13.10 preserving programs and your files. Backup is still recommended.
