I recently (a few hours ago) upgraded my test box from edgy to feisty,
I'd used apt-get to get dapper to edgy (which was fun), but this time I
used aptitude and it went (relatively) smoothly. It's especially good at
resolving dependency issues and will give you several solutions with
scores for each. It was smoother than apt-get anyway.
