Upgrading Ubuntu to 13.10

While upgrading my Ubuntu from 13.04 to 13.10, the process hanged while prompting me whether to keep or update my copy of /etc/mime.types

So I had to kill the process, but how do I continue the upgrade?

Thankfully, Ubuntu’s apt-get was very helpful, it suggested I run

sudo dpkg --configure -a

This worked perfectly and the upgrade process continued from where it left off.
