  last bit is new message from initramfs upgrade.
i edited my /etc/default/grub file to make sure
there is no resume going on at all by changing the

GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX="root=LABEL=ROOT_00 noresume"

your own line may look different.  :)

  the difference between apt-get upgrade and apt-get dist-upgrade.

  covered by the man page.
