Andrew: I think he means upgrading the same version.
Sami: This you can prevent only *before* you start upgrading. aptitude
will show you a summary of what packages will get upgraded. If you see
your running kernel there than just stop and put it on hold before you
continue with the upgrade.
If you can't explain it simply, you don't understand it well enough.
