You should start with going through the upgrade notes if your on a older version in Windows. Depending on what version of Agile. There is countless of questions/answers on this forum handling this.

Moving from Windows to Linux involves a backup of JIRA in XML form and importing it to the Linux instance. Make sure you do a few tests and the same plugins are available on your new server.

Indeed, think of this as a two step process - upgrade and move.  You can do it in either order, and plan to do them immediately one after another, but do not try to do both at the same time.  I'd follow Niclas' advice and upgrade first, then move.
