Upgrading Apache on Ubuntu 10.04

Ubuntu 10.04 (Lucid) runs Apache v2.2.14 which appears to be 0.0.6 versions behind the most secure version of Apache. The update manager does not look at higher versions of Apache so the questions become 1) is my system not secure if I'm running Lucid's Apache 2.2.14? 2) if so, how to force an upgrade. It is worth noting this is for my development machine only and it is port 80 is firewalled 99% of the time.

Forced upgrade can lead to complications, Ubuntu should back-port security patches(?) - SOURCE

The security port changelog does not show any recent security patches for Apache. - SOURCE

Other bits

Apache Version number:
$ /usr/sbin/apache2 -v


On forcing an upgrade:

Modifying sources.list didn't work as advertised.

Ubuntu Forums on how to force upgrade Apache for 10.04

Different forum, same crap.
