Why can’t I update my Ubuntu from 18.04 to 20.04?

I have been an Ubuntu user for at least 10 years. And I’ve been through a lot of updates. I am currently using 18.04 (18.04.5) on my PC and I was waiting for the popup message saying “a newer version is available”, but it never popped up.

So I visited this page and did the process (ran sudo do-release-upgrade -d), but every time I entered the command it said:

Upgrades to the development release are only available from the latest supported release.

Why is it saying that?
