You can upgrade from 12.10 to 13.04 with this command in terminal

$ sudo do-release-upgrade -d

the -d parameter here states that you want to upgrade to the latest - available devel release.

See
$ man do-release-upgrade

for more info .

Also you can download the latest .iso from here :
http://cdimage.ubuntu.com/daily-live/current/

and burn it to a DVD/USB and boot from there and upgrade through the installation process , you will see the option at the Installer window.

Thank you. (and have a good tests)
