How to Force a 18.10 update

My Update settings are set to FOR ANY NEW VERSION, I have Pre-Released updates ( bionic-proposed) check but 18.10 is not proposed as an updte

How may I force a update from 18.04 to 18.10 ?
Linux desktop-office 4.15.0-36-generic #39-Ubuntu SMP Mon Sep 24 16:19:09 UTC 2018 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

adding the flag ā€œ-dā€ to the update-manager tells it to use the next development version i.e. 18.10 in this case

update-manager -d

Obviously be aware this is beta software - so only upgrade if you are confident about using software that may have issues associated with it.

Development releases are really only for confident people who are prepared to help resolve issues/file bug reports etc.

The release date for 18.10 is Oct 18th.
