dpkg --get-selections

I've got a machine with a freshly installed woody and wanted to clone
the installed software from a running system. I did as seemingly is
common lore:

> >

> > apt-get upgrade

And nothing happens. apt-get upgrade won't install a single package.
Doing another get-selections on the target machine indicates that the
package list was not changed by set-selections.

Did I miss something?
