Now I am confused !!!

So, do I just issue

sudo aptitude full-upgrade

sudo aptitude full-upgrade and apt-get dist-upgrade do the same thing, basically. The attempt to reslove dependency issues, removing files if needed. They just do it slightly differently.

apt-get update and aptitude update are identical, they tell you what new versions are available.

The safe-upgrade and upgrade options will never remove any packages at all.

and not bother with the sudo apt-get update and sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
method ?

You have to do an update first to get the list of newer packages, either with apt-get or aptitude.

sudo aptitude full-upgrade just happens to solve a problem that sudo apt-get dist-upgrade doesn’t in this case.

Hey, it's only one command, I might even get to remember that one ;-)

aptitude does not have dist-upgrade. It has full-upgrade and safe-upgrade
are the dist-upgrade and upgrade counterparts from apt-get.

 sudo aptitude dist-upgrade works on my machine, although I believe
full-upgrade is supposed to be used now.
