Mmm, actually no, it tells to use "apt-get upgrade"
Possibly this should be turned to
"apt upgrade --without-new-pkgs"
Otherwise people will continue replacing apt-get with apt in "apt-get
upgrade" without knowing that they are really different, and get
upgrading bugs that maintainers that use "apt-get upgrade" (expectedly)
do not get.

I did see some users getting upgrading issues when running
"apt upgrade", while "apt-get upgrade" first would have solved them.
