Public bug reported:

every LTS+1 those of in +1 see zillions of people asking why do-release-upgrade -d   won't find them their new release;
it doesn't tell them why there was 'No new release found'.

So I'd like to see it say something like:
   No new release found; do-release-upgrade is configured to only look for new LTS releases (see ....)
