It should also work if someone knowledgeable does the

(update-manager or even completely automated).
I wasn't referring to Linux users, those knowledgeable, either a little

about Linux, not just nothing about Debian, almost all of whom are
Windows users, who unfortunately expect Linux to work like Windows,
I came from Win 3.1 directly to Debian (Bo, I believe) back when dpkg
was the package manager. No Apt, no Aptitude, nothing GUI, just a
command line and no automatic dependency resolution. It told you what
