Most Debian developers really regret the naming of the apt-get 'upgrade'
and 'dist-upgrade' subcommands.  In most cases, 'upgrade' is way more
conservative than you want to be, and you should just get in the habit
of doing 'dist-upgrade' wherever possible.  

Of course, if you're upgrading between releases, the safest bet is the
'do-release-upgrade' command.
