    You can upgrade an LTS release to another LTS release:

    However, many people recommend a clean install.

    Make sure to backup important data before choosing either option.

    In my opinion, try 10.04 as a LiveCD first to make sure it is compatible with your hardware.

    +1 for clean install.

    To the OP: Backing up evolution emails is discussed in this thread in case you decide not to backup whole of your /home directory.
