Well, no, the recently released Ubuntu is what would amount to what is called 
"stable" in Debian proper. The do indeed ship all the while (a 
strictly bug-fixes release over was well available when that Ubuntu 
version was released.

It does. But only in the "testing" versions of Ubuntu, just like in Debian

In fact it is the *very same* command as in Debian:

  apt-get dist-upgrade

However, people who just installed the latest and greatest Ubuntu are unlikely 
to go and "fix" their system to make it even latester and greatester.
