As far as I am aware there is no Linux version of Samsung Kies.

Your other problem will be that Ubuntu 11.04 is either at End Of Life (EOL) or very close to it so you will not be able to update Ubuntu 11.04 anymore anyway. My recommendation would be to update to the current supported versions of Ubuntu or even try Debian 6.

If you decide to upgrade your Ubuntu installation to 12.04 LTS, I think you will have to first upgrade to 11.10 before going to 12.04. The advantage of the LTS version is that you won't have to upgrade again until the next LTS some years hence, unless you want to.

No no no. Don't go and upgrade twice, that is silly and doubles your downloads. Simply download a 12.04 CD and install from that.
