It will save you time by running "# apt-get -d -y upgrade" while you go eat breakfast.

Once all the packages are downloaded, run "#apt-get
upgrade" interactively.

                                                           Right now it
seems that for every package I try to upgrade, apt-get wants to REMOVE
gcc yet upgrading all the packages at once does not. I don't understand.
Why should upgrading python, for example, result in apt-get wanting to
remove gcc?
How can I find the package(s) that, once upgraded, will allow the
upgrading of the others *without* trying to remove gcc? None of the
files that gcc depends on are in the upgrade list.
