I was trying to update my Ubuntu 13.04 Desktop to 13.10 and the Software Updater was in the point of downloading the updates when my laptop shutdown unexpectedly due to cooling issues. Now, when I try to run Software Updater again, it would try to get updates but it would freeze on the message somewhat like "Checking Updates", with the button "Finished". Checking on the system status, it is still 13.04. Would like to ask for your assistance on how to fix the Software Updater to be able to update to 13.10. Thanks.
