Upgrading ubuntu severs is always a dicey afair for me. I NEVER upgrade ubuntu as one shot upgrade. It is risk I simply can not take on servers.

According to packages.ubuntu.com, apt-listbugs is available only to LTS releases. So 6.06 and 8.04 have it, the others do not. Perhaps 10.04 will have it.
