How to Update / Upgrade from Ubuntu 13.04 to Ubuntu 13.10 Saucy Salamander

Hello Linux Geeksters.

In this article I will show you how to upgrade / update from Ubuntu 13.04 Raring Ringtail to Ubuntu 13.10 Sauchy Salamander.

This is what you have to do:

$ sudo sed -i 's/raring/saucy/' /etc/apt/sources.list
$ sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

Or:

$ sudo update-manager -d

-d upgrades to the newest development release.

At the moment, this is highly not recommended, since not even an alpha version of Ubuntu 13.10 was not released yet.
