use update-manager-core for commandline upgrades, dont use apt-get if
you cant handle the fallout you get with it (u-m has builtin handling
for a ton of special cases to guarantee a smooth upgrade in any case.
using apt-get you are on your own and will surely have to do some
additional manual steps)

see for details ...
