Vulnerabilities in Cups

In my Ubuntu Gutsy distro synaptic version of Cups is 1.32
There have been issued 7 patches up to the latest version 1.39
How do I install the latest patches to Cups.

I have tried apt-get update and upgrade and 1.32 is the latest version

Thanks for the help

Those must have been backported. See the changelogs for your version.

You can also upgrade to hardy from the package manager.

Check your apt repositories too
