Hi Jerry,

a small info tidbit on command-line package management, if you're not familiar
with it. While 'apt upgrade' does indeed upgrade packages to newer versions,
there may be circumstances where it fails to do so. Here's why:

sudo apt-get upgrade upgrades your packages but doesn't remove or install any
other packages.

sudo apt-get dist-upgrade upgrades your packages and installs or removes other
packages to resolve dependencies so all packages are up-to-date.

sudo apt full-upgrade does the same thing as sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

Credits to [0].

So in the future, if you get stuck with some packages refusing to upgrade, you
can try the 'full-upgrade' mode.

Best regards,



Janne (astraljava) Jokitalo
