If you are using aptitude, then check /var/log/aptitude.

No I do not, but should I be?

I tend to do my upgrades like this:

apt-get update -u

look at the list, and then do....

apt-get install <packages>

for things I want to do at this session. I want to be selective because I tend to only want to do certain updates after hours, just in case.
