I have Ubuntu13.04 on my laptop. I have to upgrade it to the next release or else I would install a fresh release after deleting my current system.
I have already installed and configured my current system a lot and I can't take the burden of doing it all over again if I install the next release. Now I would like to know that what all back-ups are required to be taken beforehand so that I would recover all my files/installations/configurations etc. In other words I should have everything on my new system (simply by restoring from back-ups) that I possess currently.
My current system has /, /boot, /home & swap partitions which were created by me when I had freshly installed the O.S.
