I have no experience with running mentioned software on Ubuntu but my overall experience is following: There is basically no need for reinstalling a software after system upgrade unless it gets unmet dependencies. In that case you’ll need to upgrade such software. This may happen to Matlab as it is not installed using APT. However, Matlab R2016a supports ...

Instead of add-apt-repository which you need python-software-properties package for, try the built in apt-add-repository. Works in Precise, Trusy and Xenial right out of the box. See manpage for details. Note both commands look the same, but look at the order of the apt. The built in one starts with apt, where as the other one starts with add.

My desktop went to same problem after upgrading to 14.04 lts from 12.04 lts. I found that the drivers needed were commented out in /etc/modprobe/blacklist.conf. I uncommented it and then booted desktop. My wifi is Ralink 5370, using RT2800 drivers.

Yes, running sudo apt-get update will not change or update anything. The only thing apt-get update does is refresh the local "cache" with the list of available software / packages. It won't update any packages, and it won't upgrade or change your Ubuntu version. Note that apt-get upgrade is different - that does actually update things.

Yes, using apt-get update/upgrade will maintain whatever release you have installed. However, 12.04 is EOL in less than a year.
