    That shouldn't be the case with LTS, especially with security only updates.
    A normal Release also get only security patches. The Only difference is that you can postpone the Upgrade.

      A normal release will provide security updates for their current version of the package, which means it will be upgraded if you have an old version along with all the updated dependencies. LTS aims to keep dependency versions stable so you'll only be downloading the patched package and only rarely will dependencies require updating. That's why LTS distributions typically have old (non-bleeding-edge/stable) versions.

        In the Example Ubuntu is not an bleeding egde Distribution. so in a normal release the packages don't get an upgrade only security fixes. And LTS doesn't mean that they are only stable packages include or non bleeding edge it means only that this version has longer support cycles. look at the past LTS releases. there are tons of beta, alpha and even git snapshots included.

          Maybe you missed my link: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Long-term_support

          Ubuntu policy for managing their LTS releases is their business, if they make it hard for themselves by including unstable* versions of software, that's up to them. Read the definition at Wikipedia link to see how I'm using the term.

          * Ubuntu can always stabilise packages themselves - some upstreams don't really do "stable" anyway...

            Ubuntu has an other interpretation from LTS. Like i say. look at the past lts releases and the heavy changes that they has noting todo with Stable. In Ubuntus interpretation of LTS its only a longer Support cycle.
