In typical Oracle fashion, nomenclature changes. You'll notice that 10g calls it UPGRADE and 8i & 9i call it MIGRATION.

Typically, within the same database "maintenance release number" a higher "specific release number" isn't really considered an upgrade as it is a patch/update.

Just to add, you typically 'Migrate' between platforms.
Like from windows to Linux.
>>why different country names.
Different servers are hosted in different countries but all contain the same information.
Without going into much details (on DNS/akamai/yada yada) , it is done to reduce the network traffic, balance the load and as a mirror site.
Take a commercial website like CNN. When your browser requests CNN from India, you may be re-directed to a server that is local to you.
If the same request was made in USA, it may be redirected to a local server in USA. It is all done in background.
