Please start at our Upgrade Portal:

7.x Upgrade Portal
 http://symantec.com/docs/TECH74584

Please be mindful of point 4 on the 7.5 section:

 
4.  NetBackup 7.5 Maintenance Release 5 (7.5.0.5) should be applied immediately after the 7.5 installation has been completed.  NetBackup 7.5.0.5 download information can be found at the following link:
 http://www.symantec.com/docs/TECH199269
 

So be sure you ALSO have 7.5.0.5 dowloaded, available and ready to apply BEFORE you start your upgrade!

Good luck!
