[ubuntu] Upgrade 16.04 to 18.04.5 LTS on a dual boot machine with Windows

I currently have a dual-boot machine: one partition on Windows 10 and the other on Ubuntu 16.04 (64 bit). I would like to upgrade to 18.04.5 LTS:

1. Will the upgrade wipe out important personal files (I assume not, but just asking since I’m new to this)?

2. Other than backing up important files, is there anything else I should do before the upgrade?

3. Do Ubuntu upgrades on dual boot machines (with Windows 10) tend to go smoothly? Are there certain precautionary measures I should take or problems I should be aware of?
