Use the "-d" Switch to Upgrade Ubuntu 13.10 to Ubuntu 14.04 LTS

Tried to upgrade to Ubuntu 14.04 LTS today using "Software Updater". It report the following:

The software on this computer is up to date.
However, Ubuntu 14.04 is now available (you have 13.10).

But after I clicked the "Upgrade..." button to get started, "Software Updater" disappeared without any messages.

Finally, I decided to use the following command in a command-line prompt:

  update-manager -d

It brought up the same dialog box, but this time, when I clicked on "Upgrade...", "Software Update" closed and brought up the release notes. It successfully upgraded my VirtualBox virtual machine to Ubuntu 14.04 LTS.

But it was interesting that the "-d" switch was to "Check if upgrading to the latest devel release is possible." I thought Ubuntu 14.04 LTS is a final release. Why did it fall into the devel release category?
