If you are useing dselect that is all. You need to make sure you update
the database too. But I would recomend doing and apt-get update &&
apt-get install apt apt-utils dselect && apt-get dselect-upgrade
after this your system should be just fine. But also remember it may
remove some of your stuff and possibly even break your X server. I
think you also need to install xbase-clients and xserver-xfree86. I
would also recomend checking a recent thread on debian-devel about the
upgrade process. basically they recomended that you do a dpkg
--get-selections before and afterward to make sure you kept all your
packages and dont go to use something one day and find its not there.
Just a basic suggestion that will reduce any worries. I hope this
