Remember to back up any important personal files first.

I've seen a lot of problems reported from people when upgrades go wrong so as repo suggested to a fresh install.

You might want to consider putting /home on a separate partition to / this can make installation of future upgrades a bit less work.

You could try 'sudo apt-get dist-upgrade' and check the info guides, more user friendly than man.
