To find out what is the latest version in the repository do
apt-cache policy php5

It should show which version is installed and which is the latest
version.  For 12.04 I believe the version is 5.3.10.  To make sure
that all packages are up to date run
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
