sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

Hi. Ubuntu, like all major distros, backports security fixes without changing version numbers. They often only update release numbers (for example, the “7ubuntu2” in “7.0.4-7ubuntu2”). They do this to avoid breaking backwards compatibility while still applying bug fixes and security patches.
