You could always try out with the --dry-run option ;).

The apt-get manual page for Trusty (14.04 LTS) doesn't mention an
option --install-recommends-generic or --install-recommends-lowlatency,

Tested on a Wily install:

[weremouse at moonstudio ~]$ sudo apt-get install
--install-recommends-generic --dry-run [sudo] password for weremouse: 
E: Command line option --install-recommends-generic is not understood

What do you want to do? Upgrading from a backports repository?
Upgrading from a PPA? Executing a release upgrade?

Upgrading from 14.04.2 to 14.04.x is a normal, averaged upgrade, just

sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

as you are used to do.

Trusty 14.04 LTS isn't Utopic 14.10.

Available media are 14.04 LTS, 14.04.1 LTS and 14.04.2 LTS, but no
14.04.3, see https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Releases . This are normal,
averaged upgrades, you can do as pointed out above.

If you want to do a release upgrade to Utopic, then take a look at

AFAIK it's not recommended to do an Ubuntu Studio release upgrade. It's
better to make a new install. There are tools to get a list of packages
of the old install and to install them on the new install.
