Please read this site.

https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Releases

Note that 13.04 is EOL (end of life). Please update to supported release.

13.04 isnt LTS either. 12.04 is LTS and 14.04 is LTS.

I suggest a clean install of 14.04

If you have 13.04 installed in your system, you have to upgrade to 13.10 first, before you can do the next step to 14.04.

I have Ubuntu 13.10 LTS but I have a dud about this:

If I have windows 8 and I get upgrade to Ubuntu 14.04 LTS from the System (I say that because when I turn on my pc and entering to Ubuntu it show a window which says: Upgrade to Ubuntu 14.04 LTS), the files or the same windows could erase or lost the files???

I had get the distro Ubuntu_14.04_LTS.iso but I think is not necessary...

what do you tell me?

An Ubuntu version "13.04 LTS" does not exist. Whatever you have installed on your computer, if it is an official Ubuntu version, it cannot be "13.04 LTS".

New Ubuntu releases are published twice each year, they are numbered with the year and month numbers of their publication.
Once every two years the April distribution in even years is declared LTS (long term support) with up to five years support.

So there is a 12.04 LTS and 14.04 LTS release.
12.10, 13.04 and 13.10 and "normal" releases.

Just to verify your current system setup:
Can you please boot into your Ubuntu installation, open a terminal, issue the following commands

lsb_release -a
uname -a
sudo fdisk -l

and copy/paste all output into the message box of this question document.

When you provide the output of the terminal commands

lsb_release -a
uname -a
sudo fdisk -l
apt-cache policy calibre

we may be able to help you also with your calibre problem.
