[Bug 582361] Re: apt-get doesn't mention dist-upgrade
At the moment I do not believe there is a plan for a 3rd Edition of the
Lucid Manual. Which is why it was deferred until the maverick manual.
In addition there was not time to fix this with the lucid e2 deadline.
I hope this answers your question.
Feel free to add additional comments, if you have further views.

The manual discusses the use of apt-get update and apt-get upgrade but doesn't mention apt-get dist-upgrade. Generally for new users dist-upgrade is preferable to upgrade.
This bug was also filed via the google spreadsheet. Filing here to keep track.
