If you specify "apt-get upgrade", then packages will only be upgraded if
they do not require any new packages to be installed. If this happens
you will get an "xyz package will not be upgraded" message.

Sometimes, you need "apt-get dist-upgrade" to ensure that you get the
latest version of your packages; this will install new required packages
too if necessary.

Hope that helps,
