Are you getting a message saying that the system doesn't meet requirements?

What does do-release-upgrade -c in the command line say?

I doubt there's an "AMD specific" ISO these days, I'd just go for http://mirror.aarnet.edu.au/pub/ubuntu/releases/22.04/ubuntu-22.04-desktop-amd64.iso assuming this is a desktop machine, not running Ubuntu Server.

AMD64 here just means "64 bit".
