As you said i issued the following command : sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
Got the following message : "0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 156 to
remove and 0 not upgraded." , Gave the option as "no" and did not
receive any error message. Pasting the entire snippet :
0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 156 to remove and 0 not upgraded.
After this operation, 433MB disk space will be freed.
