Thanks again, Walter.  Googling yields:

Traditionally, Debian releases have been upgradeable by changing Apt's
/etc/apt/sources.list, which specifies package repositories, and using apt-get
dist-upgrade to perform the upgrade itself. Ubuntu is still a
Debian-derived distribution, so this process would likely still work.
Instead, however, we'll use do-release-upgrade, a tool provided by the
Ubuntu project, which handles checking for a new release, updating
sources.list, and a range of other tasks. This is the officially
recommended upgrade path for server upgrades which must be performed over a
remote connection.

I'm afraid to use the do-release-upgrade command, because (1) I can't find
documentation for it
(The above site just tells how to do it like a monkey), and (2) It might
try to give me 18.04, not 16.04.

I'd like to try the apt-get dist-upgrade command instead.  But to do this I
need to know
what to ADD to /etc/apt/sources.list to get 16.04 Lubuntu.   Any idea what
repository (file name)
I should add?
