Trying to install

AMD Catalyst(TM) Proprietary Driver Installer/Packager

error: Detected X Server version 'XServer 1.19.6_64a' is not supported. Supported versions are X.Org 6.9 or later, up to XServer 1.10 (default:v2:x86_64:lib:XServer 1.19.6_64a:none:4.15.0-43-generic:) Installation will not proceed.

Do I need another Linux distribution in order to have XServer 6.9 ? If so, can somebody tell what's best for an old Asus laptop with E2 vision AMD and Radeon HD7470M, so I'm able to install the provided driver updates from manufacturers?
