I do :

apt-get update
if [ "$packages" ]; then
        DEBCONF_PRIORITY=critical apt-get -y --force-yes install $packages
DEBCONF_PRIORITY=critical apt-get -y upgrade

so maybe apt-get upgrade is not enough here ? Is apt-get too broken to handle
this and we should move to aptitude, or is a dist-upgrade needed ?
dist-upgrade is supposed only for release-to-release upgrades, and should not
be used for day-to-day upgrades. ... Mmm, it needed a dist-upgrade indeed.

About the graphical installer, what are the plan for mainline merging, it was
supposed to be soon after the beta2 release, was it not ?
