You're right, there is no package 'upgrade-reports'; it is a so called
'pseudo-package', which means that the Bug Tracking System treats it
like real packages and you can report bugs against it like against
real packages.

http://www.debian.org/Bugs/pseudo-packages has a list of all
pseudo-packages, and regarding this example it says:
"upgrade-reports - Reports of upgrade problems for stable & testing"

So if you detect a problem when upgrading your system to Lenny you
can describe the problem by submitting a bug report against
'upgrade-reports', e.g. by simply typing 'reportbug upgrade-reports'.

Hope that helps,
