Well, they DID mention that was for doing an upgrade to the Maverick
packages before the first Alpha ISO was available...

OTOH, yeah, much easier to just edit update-releases and do a
do-release-upgrade -d or update-manager -d

However, for the OP, I'd suggest, as others have, to just wait until
after the 10th.  At this point, the hope is that everything is mostly
fixed (and a couple exceptions, it seems so) but 10.10 won't
officially exist until the 10th... until then, it's still an unstable
beta and should be treated as such...
