Yes, dist-upgrade= update+ remove obsolete packages.

It does NOT upgrade you to another Lubuntu version.

My original text should have been:

"dist-upgrade" is equivalent to "update" + it removes obsolete packages.

When update gets back at the command prompt, the update process has
finished (reasonably).
