when doing apt-get upgrade on my ubuntu 9.10 ec2 instance, i see that there are upgrades pending for linux-ec2 and linux-image-ec2

normally to get those held back packages to upgrade by doing 'apt-get dist-upgrade' but they still get held back

apt-get dist-upgrade -V

This server was built from m1.large instance of ami-ab15f6c2

uname -a:
Linux domU-XX-XX-XX-XX-XX-XX 2.6.31-302-ec2 #7-Ubuntu SMP Tue Oct 13 19:55:22 UTC 2009 x86_64 GNU/Linux

What are the updates? 

Do I want to force them or are they held back for a good reason?

What is best approach for updating?
