This question already has an answer here:

When the window poped up that told me that 13.04 was released, I clicked on "Install later". Right now, I have got the time to upgrade but I can't find a button where to do it. It used to be in the update manager in previous versions but it has gone. Where can I dist-upgrade manually?

  • Thanks for looking into this. My update manager says: Everything's up to date. The button mentioned here (askubuntu.com/a/129975/69748) isn't there any more in 12.10. – user69748 May 12 '13 at 18:24
  • I don't know why, but I kept trying and update-manager -d now works where it hadn't before. – user69748 May 12 '13 at 18:31
update-manager -d

Accept all updates, it'll reload, and it'll tell you there is a new release.
