Each upload to the Ubuntu archive is announced via a mailing list. They are also available via RSS.

These are of course very high volume. Even after the release, all uploads to the proposed and security archives are announced. is a third-party service that also tracks this sort of information, including for specific PPAs:

Also interesting is Launchpad's build farm. Here you can see what packages are currently building in both PPAs and the official archives.

If you have a PPA (Personal Package Archive) on your Software Sources then you need to run sudo apt-get update

Which update all of your packages. You should then be able to update via Synaptic or Software Center.
