    Ubuntu usually reminds as soon as a new version is released depending upon the preferences (LTS or non LTS). For LTS releases, it reminds after first point release like 18.04.1 which is usually released in July – Kulfy May 28 at 9:49
  • Lubuntu 18.04 is LTS for three years only. – DK Bose May 28 at 9:59
  • If you miss the end of life announcement then it simply won't upgrade any longer. There are usually plenty of announcements on the web. – kc1di May 28 at 10:02

    Possible duplicate of How do I find out which version and derivative of Ubuntu is right for my hardware in terms of minimal system requirements? From the accepted answer: Security and maintenance updates will be provided for Lubuntu LTS releases for 3 years. – karel May 28 at 10:07
  • fyi: Kulfy's comment applies to all flavors of Ubuntu including Lubuntu. If you install 18.04 LTS, you'll get the option to upgrade to 20.04 LTS a few days after the release of 20.04.1. Lubuntu's unique packages only come with 3 years of support for LTS releases (9 months regular releases); though the packages that are shared with Ubuntu will still receive upgrades for a further two years but you should upgrade rather than having only part of your system using supported packages. – guiverc May 28 at 10:07

In 'software and updates' there is a section named 'updates', at the bottom there is a section where you choose if you want to be reminded or not. At least in Ubuntu, I think Lubuntu has something similar. Think the default setting is to be reminded though.
