sudo apt-get update ; sudo apt-get upgrade

will do the work

Why apt-get update? because you've got to refresh the package cache to
let apt-get know what is new in order to upgrade/dist-upgrade it.

As people usually tell to newbies, do a 

man apt-get

and you will find the answer to it

recomendation: always

man whatever

before asking, not to avoid bothering people (you will see that
there's always someone who doesn't like newbies questions), but
because it's the best way to learn.
