I believe that was a suggestion that you consult the documentation for 
"update-alternatives" in the system manual page collection, section 8. 
Or in command form:

man 8 update-alternatives

The "<topic>(<section>)" shorthand as a way to refer to man pages is 
traditional Unix-ese, derived from the page headers of the V7 Research 
Unix system manual (a thing made of actual paper.)
