It means there are no packages pending configuration, meaning any
package that was unpacked was configured successfully.  So, your
system is probably in good shape.

'apt-get clean' just removes all the packages you've downloaded (in
/var/cache/apt/archives/), so you'll have to re-download all those
updated packages.
