Assuming you have dselect set for the apt method, run dselect and
[U]pgrade, the [Q]uit. Then run apt-get dselect-upgrade.

Dselect doesn't recognize the apt-get update until you run update in
dselect (you don't have to run apt-get update separately).  You might also
want to run select in dselect to see what is marked for upgrade.
