after installing the base system, which is a little more difficult for a
newbie, anything can be updated by the apt-get programm. Also new
installations to your system will be managed by apt-get install

To update the whole system (e.g. for security reasons) you run 
apt-get upgrade
nothing is more easier than upgrade a running debian system.
