I'm guessing something is messed up with your install of ubuntu. The kernel version (2.6.20) suggests that you are using Feisty. Although Dapper is still supported for security updates, it's getting old and you would probably need to manually compile and install the source code versions of digikam and the required libs instead of using the packaged versions from synaptic. 
To your individual points..
1-This is not your normal "dapper" kernel, instead it looks like you have "feisty" installed (2.6.20 suggests)
3-If you are truly on Dapper, you cannot upgrade to gutsy without first upgrading through the other versions (edgy then feisty). If you are on Feisty , then you can upgrade to gutsy by following the procedure on the ubuntu website. See http://www.ubuntu.com/testing/710rc. It might be best to wait a few days for the official version to come out.  However, you may have the best luck backing up all your data and doing a complete fresh install of gutsy from CD (this is what I would do). Or do the backup, try the upgrade and if it still has problems, do a fresh install.
4-All versions have the utilities needed, you just need to install them via synaptic and figure out how to use them.  There are lots of good examples to get you started such as http://www.digikam.org/?q=download/svn
5-What version is it?
6-You may be correct-something does appear strange in your setup.
7-See #3 above.  Upgrades to new "distribution" versions are not automatic, you have to follow the upgrade procedure or do a fresh install.

Gutsy would give you digikam version 0.9.2.
Feel free to email me directly if questions are about Ubuntu updates and not digikam.

Good Luck, Geoff
