That means an update *to* to the distribution, not an upgrade *of* the
distribution.  I think
Martinx may well be right in that it happens if there are new packages
to install, though I am not certain of that.  You need not worry about
it upgrading to a new version of Ubuntu, you will only get that
through the update manager by clicking on the button that may appear
at the top telling you that there is a new version available.
