I'm currently upgrading one of my Debian 9/KDE machines and have around 1000 packages being held back after running
sudo apt-get upgrade -> should I run
sudo apt full-upgrade,
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade,
sudo apt-get install [~1000 packages] (how?) or something else?
Here it says:
New versions of currently installed packages that cannot be upgraded without changing the install status of another package will be left at their current version (displayed as “held back”). This can be resolved by either using aptitude to choose these packages for installation or by trying apt install package.
apt full-upgrade step.
In some stackexchange answers on related questions like this one it says that running
apt-get dist-upgrade can be dangerous during a upgrade when packages have been held back and instead recommend using other more cautious methods than just running
apt-get dist-upgrade or
apt full-upgrade even though this old page at debian-administration.org says that to fix this problem one should run
When I run
sudo apt upgrade (not in the official guide) instead of
sudo apt-get upgrade it only shows 1 package having unmet dependencies.
