Right, so you're already running 10.10, the development release, so
"do-release-upgrade -d" won't have any effect until about 12th October
when it will happily upgrade you to the _next_ development release
11.04 (Natty Narwhal) - and you seriously don't want to do that.

I guess the reason you're running that command is because you're
following that guide at webupd8 that I suggested you avoid. Hey ho.
