I use this set in aptitude*, but in apt-get* it's exactly the same:

sudo aptitude update && \
sudo aptitude safe-upgrade && \
sudo aptitude full-upgrade && \
# sudo aptitude clean

Note the difference between safe-upgrade (upgrade in old versions) and
full-upgrade (dist-upgrade in old version).

safe-upgrade upgrades all packages which won't interfere with other
packages, while full-upgrade will upgrade all packages, even if it requires
removing (or "changing the name" of) third packages.

* Please have a look at this link so you can use the gret libapt even
better: http://www.debian-administration.org/articles/462
