I am reading the venv official documentation available here:

If I pick English - 3.9.0, it's stated:
"Changed in version 3.8: Add --upgrade-deps option to upgrade pip + setuptools to the latest on PyPI"

When I run this my laptop:
$ python3 --version
Python 3.8.5

$ python3 -m venv venv-myproject --clear --upgrade-deps
usage: venv [-h] [--system-site-packages] [--symlinks | --copies] [--clear] [--upgrade] [--without-pip] [--prompt PROMPT] ENV_DIR [ENV_DIR ...]
venv: error: unrecognized arguments: --upgrade-deps

If I pick English - 3.8(.6), I (correctly) don't see the option in the documentation.

Please fix the documentation of 3.9 to indicates that this option was changed (added) in 3.9 and not 3.8
