The .deb extension indicates that it is a Debian/Ubuntu package file, and so should ideally be installed by the system's package manager. If you look inside the .sh file, you'll see that it's a bash script that (after sourcing some other script) calls apt-get on the package. You should try that first.
No. There is no Ubuntu 10.Ubuntu 10 is a Linux operating system.
Not likely, unless it was one of those rare laptops that shipped with Ubuntu. In any case, stick with an actively supported LTS version -- currently Ubuntu 16.04 or 18.04....but my laptop is built for it,
There is nothing in 10.10 that will perform better than a modern driver compiled for the kernel supplied with 18.04. Again, the Dell driver that needed to be installed manually in 10.10 is likely by now compiled as a module into the kernel. If not, you will either a) need to compile your own driver module from source code, or b) find a binary version compatible with your current kernel (unlikely).Despite that I am using v18.04, I still would like to use the drivers because they should improve the performance.
