apt-get update only updates the repository for your computer. That is
it only fetches a file from the server you specifie in
/etc/apt/sources.list that says what packages are available and where
to find them (along with other info).
To actually upgrade you have to do apt-get upgrade.
You also need to do `apt-get dist-upgrade`
the difference is that `apt-get upgrade` won't install packages that
require new packages (previously not installed) to get installed or to
remove old packages (because new packages/newly named packages replace them)
though note, I don't know about the apt-get pinning part; at least I
hope it won't do something wrong with `apt-get upgrade`/`apt-get
