Hi, welcome to the fora.

Your machine contains a mix of the Ubuntu versions 9.10 to 11.04. After so many upgrades a fresh install is due.

I feared this might be the case.

Thanks very much!

I have a new problem now. It seems my computer did a partial upgrade. When I restarted it there are no graphics, just a command line.
Does this mean there are packages missing and a clean install is still necessary, or simply my third party graphics driver (nvidia) has been uninstalled and reinstalling might fix the issue?

Upon starting "welcome to ubuntu 11.04" appears before the command line.

Never do a partial upgrade:

You shouldn't pay too much attention to the existing installation. Just back up your files and give your poor machine a new one.
