Please do not post such long content, which is useless to others. I think you've just copied all this and paste here, so we're not going to read all these steps. I can't see where's problem in this?
You can achive this upgradation using update manager. And everything is clearly documented on Ubuntu website ( ).

So please be specific to problem, before anybody ask you to show the steps you performed. Have good luck!
