[HOW TO] Upgrade Xubuntu 12.10 to 13.04

In this article we'll see how to upgrade Xubuntu 12.10 to Xubuntu 13.04, using both a graphical method and a command line method. But first there's a few thing to bear in mind: Backup your files. The upgrade might take some time, so be patient. If you added PPAs manually they'll be disabled. If they support 13.04 you can enable them again later. Upgrade from Software Updater Open "Update Manager" ( Applications Menu > Settings Manager > Software Updater ). On the dialog presented to you (similar to the image above) click the "Upgrade" button next to the message that is saying that a new Xubuntu version is available. Then follow the instructions presented to you. Note: If during the installation you are given a list of services that should be stopped/restarted, for each service run this command (replace SERVICE_NAME with the service name from the list): sudo service SERVICE_NAME restart Upgrade from terminal
