Ubuntu Upgrades can be a bit bumpy, even from LTS to LTS.

I ended up doing clean install after upgrading from 10.04 to 12.04 anyway.

Be aware of older ATI/AMD graphics cards not working unless you use opensource driver.

Use gparted to create and copy old partition to new partition on current or other drive.
Run gksu update-grub
Try Ubuntu Upgrade to 12.04 LTS and on new partition. I have had success with both Ubuntu and Libre downloads and installs.

_If you don't feel comfortable about this__, don't do it._

If possible install 14.04 LTS fresh when a couple of releases have been out.

Hi :)
You probably can't get a PPA or anything for Ubuntu 10.04 now.  It is
past it's end-of-life.  Generally it is recommended to upgrade to
12.04 LTS (this time 5 years support).
If the OP is going to upgrade, I would suggest that he waits a couple of
months for 14.04 LTS to be released... :-)
