Upgrades can be difficult
Upgrading from a prior version to Linux Mint 13 can be problematic. Linux Mint's website suggests that upgrades are likely unnecessary, as the built-in updating functionality keeps most things reasonably up to date. But there are many legitimate reasons for an upgrade and changing from one edition to another is harder than it needs to be. If you want to upgrade, it's best to backup key data files, remember your customisations and then use the siege howitzer of the traditional Unix/Linux/Solaris/BSD/GNU file cannon: the tar -xvf command.
