The file which sets this option is actually part of the ubuntu-release-
upgrader source package:

 $ dpkg -S /etc/update-manager/release-upgrades
ubuntu-release-upgrader-core: /etc/update-manager/release-upgrades

** Package changed: software-properties (Ubuntu) => ubuntu-release-
upgrader (Ubuntu)

** Changed in: ubuntu-release-upgrader (Ubuntu)
       Status: New => Triaged

** Changed in: ubuntu-release-upgrader (Ubuntu)
   Importance: Undecided => High

** Also affects: ubuntu-release-upgrader (Ubuntu Yakkety)
   Importance: High
       Status: Triaged

** Summary changed:

- 'Notify me of a new Ubuntu version' set to LTS by default in Yakkety
+ release-upgrades prompt option set to LTS in Yakkety

Bug description:
  In Software & Updates, by default the current setting is to only

  Naturally, I imagine that this bug would be fixed on a CD image and
  the one I used is now 5 days old so if someone could confirm this if
  they find the bug on the latest CD image then I would be very
