I might also add your signature is not in congruence with your post. Do you have 10.8.5, or 10.5.8. 10.8.5 is a free update to 10.9. 10.5.8, you must buy 10.6, download the free 10.6.8 combo to get to 10.8 or 10.9 via the App Store.
The sequence of the numbers matters greatly.
Per my prior post
10.5.8 < 10.6< 10.6.8 < 10.7 < 10.8 < 10.8.5 < 10.9
People just wanting 10.7 from 10.5.8 can purchase either 10.6 on CD, download 10.6.6 combo, and use the App Store to upgrade to 10.7. They can also purchase the 10.7 USB Flash drive if it can be found, and install it on an external drive, and import the data over once they are ready to run 10.7.
The key is knowing your software and driver compatibility.
