sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade

Or just refresh update manager.

It's part of the normal release system (v8 is in both ubuntu-updates and ubuntu-security) so you should get it. If you're still not getting it, there's likely a problem with your updates in general.

Running sudo apt-get update manually in a terminal should display any errors.
