Hi.

Linux-Mint, Fedora, FatDog or?

CLI is best while learning GUI's ok too... Debien based like Mint or *buntu's whould look something like:
Code:
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade
...

Best wishes and have fun!

Edits.

Assuming that you mean Ubuntu 15.04, no, you already have the latest version, the next version, 15.10, will come in October. You will be notified about security updates and bug fixes though from the Update Notifier software, installing those updates is strongly recommended. The Update Notifier software should also inform you about newer versions of Ubuntu once they are released.

There are many ways to do that, the easiest way for people new to Linux is to use the Update Notifier software that I mentioned above. It is pretty self explanatory. When you do version upgrades it is also always a good idea to read the release notes first, they may inform you about possible problems when upgrading.

The commands you just run will at first update the software database, then it will look for updates and ask you if you want to install them. You should be fine with just confirming that when you are asked.

Debian based distros ( like Ubuntu 15.04) use the command "upgrade" to INSTALL UPDATES

-- a bit confusing but this is debian

the code that "jamison20000e" posted
Code:
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade
will first UPDATE the database of software

THEN

install the SECURITY updates and fixes
sort of like MS Windows "auto-update" installs UPDATES
