Wow! apt-get is great!

After a year of using Debian 1.3 without ever upgrading packages via ftp, I
got my 2.0 CDs and upgarded via apt.  It went great.

Now, a few weeks later, I decide to try to upgrade packages via ftp.

I edit /etc/apt/sources.list and run

$ apt-get update
$ apt-get upgrade

Wow!  It's great!  Super upgrade with hardly any interaction!
Thanks for such a great tool!

[Q] What would I do differently if I only wanted to upgarde certain
    packages?  Could I still use apt-get?
