Just upgraded from 13.04 to 13.10.

Everything went fine but I don't see the time in the top right corner of the 'top bar' anymore. I tried to right click on it so I could get some options but nothings shows.

I'm sure it's obvious but I don't see it.

    I think you have hit a bug.

    Did you ever file a bug report? I'm now experiencing this myself.

    This is not "problems with the development version of Ubuntu" - I upgraded to the official release of 13.10 experienced the same problem. Maybe it's a bug though.

Already solved here and here.
From the terminal:

sudo apt-get install indicator-datetime
sudo dpkg-reconfigure --frontend noninteractive tzdata
sudo killall unity-panel-service

Then logout & login from the graphic session.
If the clock is still hidden/grayed out:

Time&Date panel --> Clock --> Show a clock in the menu bar

If it still doesn't work report a bug on Launchpad.
*edited to solve a bigger slice of problems.

    Still doesn't work for me on 13.10 - the panel you show above is greyed out for me.

    For me, indicator-datetime was already installed after the upgrade. The last two commands solved the issue though, thanks.

Go to Time & Date under System Settings, and after you click on it, click on the Clock tab, and make sure that there is a check mark in Show a clock in the menu bar. See image below.

enter image description here

Edit on behalf of @user221931 If the whole panel is grayed out, try (as mentioned already in another answer) the following commands in a terminal:

sudo dpkg-reconfigure --frontend noninteractive tzdata && sudo killall unity-panel-service

run sudo apt-get install gnome-control-center. If it is un-installed, install it. Then for date-time install the package indicator-datetime.
