upgarde doesn´t take a package name as paramater.
man apt-get:
upgrade is used to install the newest versions of all packages
currently installed on the system

$ apt-get --show-upgraded --verbose-versions upgrade

$ apt-get --show-upgraded --verbose-versions dist-upgrade

The above should give a little more output why it isn´t upgraded.
