is there a set of command parameters to aptitude or the apt-* utils to

like "aptitude -V -n dist-upgrade" .. where -n is default 'no' to all
questions. But -n doesn't exist from what I can see. :)


apt-get -s dist-upgrade will simulate the upgrade.  Not sure about
aptitude, but I guess it will have a similar flag.
