In addition to what other have said, I'd strongly recommend against
using apt when attempting cross-grades, as the way apt currently
supports it is by removing the old instance and installing the new
one, which might render your system unusable. Also to perform some
cross-gradings you might need for some shared libraries to be marked
M-A:same which they might not yet be.

You can use bare dpkg, which does support cross-grading natively, but
then you might end up running into dependency-hell...

See my example cross-grading session in
Altough splitting the --unpack and --configure stages should make the
cross-grade easier.
