You don't want to upgrade between non-LTS releases, so you wouldn't
want to upgrade from Natty to Precise directly or Maverick to Oneiric.

LTS releases are designed to be upgraded directly between each other,
so you could upgrade directly from Hardy to Lucid, and this cycle you
can upgrade from Lucid to Precise.

That said, even though this "sudo do-release-upgrade -d" option is
supported right now, you may want to wait until 12.04.1 when the
Update Manager prompts you to do an upgrade.
