[kwlug-disc] Version Mismatch Ubuntu 12.04 linux-image-generic

'apt-get dist-upgrade' allows it to install new packages (like kernel
images), not just upgrade existing files.  Sometimes that's necessary. 
It won't upgrade the entire distribution from 12.04 to 12.10

'do-release-upgrade' would upgrade the distribution from 12.04 to
12.10.  But I'm not quite sure how you would upgrade from 10.04 to 12.04
and skip all the releases in between...
