    stuck with ubuntu 11.10 :(

    hi
    i bought a dell latptop from egypt . dell inspiron 5520 core i3 third generation
    the laptop came with ubuntu , but with ubuntu 11.10
    ofc all drivers work , even i have dell recovery too on the ubuntu . as u can see on the middle

    now i want to upgrade to ubuntu 12.4 or 12.10 . or even 13.4
    sooner or later the support will stop ...
    this is my hard disk

    my questions :
    1: how to upgrade ubuntu and keep the dell recovery and the drivers ofc?
    2: should i be worried that ubuntu drivers update's miss with original drivers ?
    3: can i install new fresh install and make the dell recovery on the new install ?

    4: where is the power setting like windows 7 ?
    5: where is touchpad setting like windows 7 ?
    TY.

    Do you have your software sources set to do a release upgrade?

    A release upgrade can also be done in terminal.
