I’ve decided to download Ubuntu 13.10 via torrent as soon as the release is available. That happened around 20:00 17-October. This is heavy internet traffic here. I checked my current system status with Updater and it has a few last minute updates for Ubuntu 13.04. So I updated 13.04. But the servers aren’t ready yet for a upgrade to 13.10.
Around 1:00 18-October I checked Updater again and it has some security updates for X-org. I let it update and Canonical’s servers offered to upgrade my system to Ubuntu 13.10.
