Upgrade from Oneiric to Precise

Asked by Heinz-Peter Fohrmann on 2012-07-21

I recently bought the Asus X54C-SO249DU with pre-installed Ubuntu.
It turned out, that the installed version of Ubuntu is 11.10. so I tried an upgrade by choosing "notification for LTS" in the software update manager (I don't know the exact English term since I use a German localization).
An upgrade to precise did not show up.
On checking the package sources I learned, that my actual Ubuntu version is called "oneric-beitou"! This is an OEM distribution, it seems.
Can anybody tell me wether there will be a future upgrade to precise available - be it "precise-beitou" or whatever?
Thanks in advance for any helpful comment or answer.

Everything worked out fine, it seems.
