I use aptitude not apt-get, so cannot comment on apt-get, but the "aptitude
full-upgrade" command does nothing without asking first, so there is no

therefore only use safe upgrade when I want to do at least a partial upgrade
but do not want something specific removed which full-upgrade is threatening
