Consider to use a search engine and to read the Ubuntu
Wiki/help/askubuntu/mailing list archive. By default upgrades from one
LTS release to the next LTS are only possible, as soon as the first dot
release of the next LTS is available. IOW as soon as 16.04.1 is

It's explained here and each good search engine provides it as one of
the first hits:


"For further stability of a LTS release there is a slight change in
behaviour if you are currently running a LTS version. LTS systems are
only automatically considered for an upgrade to the next LTS via
do-release-upgrade with the first point release. So for example 14.04
will only upgrade once 16.04.1 is released. If you want to update
before, e.g. on a subset of machines to evaluate the LTS upgrade for
your setup the same argument as an upgrade to a dev release has to be
used via the -d switch."

And by the mailing list archive I already explained it this year:
