According to the Adobe website, the latest version of Adobe Reader available for Linux is 9.5.4.
If you go to http://get.adobe.com/uk/reader/otherversions/ and fill out the download form (select OS, language and version), the only downloads it lists for Linux are several versions of 9.5.4 in different package formats: .bin, .deb, .rpm, .tar.bz2.

So the version you installed via the Canonical partner repo (9.5.4) IS the latest version available for Linux.

If you are worried that Adobe Reader 9.5.4 is out of date or vulnerable to malicious exploits etc, you could always use one of the many other pdf viewers available for Linux instead: Okular, Evince, epdfview etc. And if you want to edit pdf's there are programs like pdfedit or libreoffice available that can do this too. All of the programs mentioned should be available in the repos of all Debian derived distros, so they should just be an apt-get install away. :)
Hope this is of some help to you!

**As my measure requirement is to highlighter so I think Okular stands out as the best of the bunch, because its ability to comment on, highlight etc.
