First, 14.10 is beyond end of life and so it is going to be more difficult. Second "dist-upgrade" does NOT upgrade ubuntu. (This is a fairly common misunderstanding, perhaps the option "dist-upgrade" is a bit misleading, perhaps dist-sync or some such would have been better).

sudo apt-get dist-upgrade does not upgrade Ubuntu to the next version. And it is generally not a good idea to upgrade 14.04.2 LTS to 14.10. Ubuntu 15.10 has not been released yet.

That said, to upgrade to a development release open your terminal by ...

There are some new patches available today. Try running Software Updater again. After I installed the latest kernel and patches, wine started working again for me. Perhaps it will help with your other issues too.

My opinion based answer is, I have fewer problems with GNOME 3.16 as with GNOME 3.14 in my GNOME Ubuntu 15.04 with proprietary nvidia drivers. A warning for not supported software is always good to avoid discussions. GNOME 3.16 is released since weeks and the PPAs have some patches included. That's a good sign for me. Ok, maybe there are some apps which ...
