Welcome to UF greatcyrus

Open update manager, click settings on the bottom left. That will open software sources. Select the updates tab, and make sure it says "LTS releases only" under "release upgrades".

It is better to perform a new fresh install. Like this, you avoid any problems in the future with configuration and/or setting files due to version conflicts.

#Another way by terminal:

sudo apt-get install aptitude

sudo sed -i 's/karmic/lucid/g' /etc/apt/sources.list && sudo aptitude update && sudo aptitude dist-upgrade

It will be the third upgrade for the system. If anything goes wrong, you could try this:
