One of the nice things about Debian is the way upgrades are handled. There are
always stuff trickling down into sarge from sid, so new packages are
apt keeps a local list of available packages that you need to update to be
able to find the new packages on the server.
Two ways of doing that are:
Start aptitude as root, and press u.
or run the command:
When it is done fetching the list of packages, you can get the upgrades by
Iin aptitude press shift-u and then g.
or run the command.
When you are done you need to restart x to be sure everything uses the new
packages. Perhaps it is easier to just reboot your system.
