As an aside, you should consider using 'apt' and not 'apt-get'.

Why? What functional difference is there between 'apt-get upgrade' and
'apt-get install' and the apt equivalents?

See below.

I don't agree with john doe's assertion; I'm just answering the literal

Reading Debian wiki 'apt-get' is no longer the recommended way to manage pkgs:


"apt upgrade" will install new packages, if necessary, to satisfy the
upgrade dependencies; "apt-get upgrade" will not.  This is quite visible
every time there's a new kernel ABI bump.

This behavior is expected if you read apt(8):
