Hi all, I've recently jumped back and had a look around Ubuntu I installed years ago. I'm currently dual booting with Windows 10 and running Ubuntu 13.10 (yes, very old release..)

Anyway, the main reason I installed Ubuntu in the first place (this was in 2013 I guess?), was so if for some reason I couldn't boot Windows (happened when I first got my laptop, repaired under warranty) I could boot into Ubuntu and retrieve files and documents easy enough.

My question:
I'm running 13.10. I've done basic research and so far I've found that ideally you'd want to upgrade to each release as it comes out. What would be the best way to go about this?
I'm assuming that the dual boot screen would change too? FYI - I turn my computer on, the screen I get is this below. I can choose Ubuntu to boot, or the third option to boot Windows (I found this photo online)

Sorry if I'm missing something completely obvious or my terminology is off or what not.

I guess also, with my main use of Ubuntu for access to my drives if Windows fails, is it even worth really upgrading it?

Thanks in advance for your help!
