dapper-updates is a special software repository (channel). Ubuntu
promises that functionality does not change after release. Sometimes,
however, Ubuntu would like to push important updates for software
problems or, like in this case, updates that are needed for a smooth
upgrade. To give administrator the choice about applying them, these
updates are separated into their own channel.

Navigate to "System" > "Administration" > "Software Properties" and make
sure that dapper-updates is enabled there.
