Is there an easy way to search for packages which are installed and have
more than one version available to see which version is currently

The reason for asking is that I just accidentally noticed that
php4-common, libapache2-mod-php4 and php4-mysql had a newer version in
security-updates but they had not been automatically upgraded. Manually
installing the newer versions of those had no problems.

I would like to find out if I have more packages which would have a
newer version available but haven't been upgraded.

I'm using Debian etch AMD64.
dpkg -l | grep ii

will show everything installed on your system

That it does.

apt-cache search <package> [or part name]

will show you available packages

Yes but without the version numbers
While in aptitude, "v" will show you all the versions of a package available as determined by your /etc/apt/sources.list
