I tried doing this before from the software updater and it upgraded me to 12.10 and then I upgraded to 13.04 and then when I tried to upgrade to 13.10 it said that it can't because I'm using a daily build so how do I avoid upgrading to a daily build from Ubuntu 12.04 as I assume that the 12.10 was a daily build install too. Also if I try to upgrade via cd/dvd it hangs when it asks me if I want to install updates and or proprietary software.

you can upgrade to 12.10 by changing a setting in the update-manager.

To do this: open update-manager click 'settings' under updates tab change 'For long-term support versions' to 'For any new version'

I know that but it's upgrading me to 12.10 beta, not the final release – davidbuddy9 Jan 29 '14 at 3:34
aren't all releases considered beta besides the lts release? – user238802 Jan 30 '14 at 22:19
No, look at: As you can see their is a Beta and a final for plain Ubuntu – davidbuddy9 Feb 1 '14 at 3:14
