If you want to update Google Nexus S to Android 4.2.2, there is only one way to do it: by installing a Custom ROM. This is because Android stopped officially supporting Android updates for Nexus S at 4.1.2. One of the biggest custom ROM developing team in the world is offering you a solution though, by giving you CyanogenMod 10.1.3 for Google Nexus S. CyanogenMod 10.1.3 was released for many devices including the Nexus S, and it is based on Android 4.2.2. It is said to be the last release in the "10.1" series which runs on 4.2.2 and it is also a stable ROM. This means the team considers the ROM is ready to be used daily without experiencing any issues. The CyanogenMod team has announced on Google+ that they will stop working on 10.1 and will dedicate their time for the 10.2 'nightlies' that are based on Android 4.3 and eventually on Android 4.4. KitKat.

First, you will have to install a Custom Recovery such as ClockworkMod. If you haven't installed it before, you can check out this guide on the CyanogenMod Wiki page.
