Recently upgraded XBMC from version 12 (frodo) to version 13 (gotham) on my standalone XBMCbuntu install. The current advice from the XBMC crowd is to reinstall xbmcbuntu, but I was not really looking forward to reconfigure the whole box.
Turns out that it is quite simple to upgrade to gotham by removing and reinstalling xbmc. Instructions below. Please do note that although this worked well for me, it is not a guarantee that it will work for you and I highly recommend making a backup in case something goes wrong.
