Re: what's the diff between 'aptitude upgrade' and 'aptitude dist-upgrade'?
i'm confused about several aptitude param.
thank you all.
I see that while dist-upgrade is documented in the aptitude
documentation, it is not mentioned in the manual page.
The aptitude manual page references the apt-get manual page ('man
apt-get'). I suggest you take a look at that. The command descriptions
are more complete, and as far as I am aware, accurate for aptitude as
well. The differences between upgrade and dist-upgrade are described
there as well as I could explain them to you.
Note that the difference _is_ well documented in the aptitude
documentation as well. You just have to look further. As you can see,
the full aptitude documentation is referenced in the See Also section of
the manual page as:
An equally adequate reference is available as:
If you still have questions about the respective behavior of these
commands, feel free to ask.
