Are there red flags in the above output that mean I need to do
preliminary work before `full-uptrade' ?

My goal is to *use* Debian, so I want stability.

I tried "apt-get dist-upgrade" in the past, and found it to be an exercise in frustration. Even if it "worked", I typically ran into problems afterwards.

Only a backup, fresh system drive, fresh install, and restore cycle gives me the confidence I desire.
