Haven't you heart about apt-get dist-upgrade?

(from man apt-get)

              dist-upgrade, in addition to performing  the  func­
              tion  of upgrade, also intelligently handles chang­
              ing dependencies with  new  versions  of  packages;
              apt-get  has  a "smart" conflict resolution system,
              and it will attempt to upgrade the  most  important
              packages  at  the expense of less important ones if
              necessary.  The /etc/apt/sources.list file contains
              a  list of locations from which to retrieve desired
              package files.
