Why do I see "Welcome to nginx on Debian!" when installing Nginx on Ubuntu?

I followed the instructions here to install LEMP stack on Ubuntu 15.04, but on testing nginx in the browser I see on screen “Welcome to nginx on Debian!”, where it should be “Welcome to nginx on Ubuntu!”

I hope it does not make much of a difference, if anybody can let me know. Thanks.
