I think you are looking for Inkscape.
You can install it in the Software Manager.

This tutorial could be helpful

Yeh inkscape will do what you want. Import your image, select it then go to Paths>Trace Bitmap
Image
You can play with the settings in there.

Maybe check out SVGpage, it is in the repo. Much depends on the image you need to convert.

There is a bit of info about it here http://www.gimphelp.org/svgpage_readme.shtml
and here removed/software/svgpage

basically a front end for command line autotrace, also in the repo. A search for suitable parameters will bring up some possibles.
