As said before, if you're in the sudo group and in the /etc/sudoers
file you can run "apt-get upgrade". The main difference I've seen
between being root and sudoing is that when you're root (This is only
by default, not always) apt-get usually doesn't ask you to give a
[y/n] before installing everything, while running as sudo does. I'm
sure that can be changed but it's really the only main difference
between root and sudo when it comes to apt.
