A lot of distros have GUI apps that make it as simple as clicking a few buttons.

In Gentoo 'emerge sync; emerge -Du world' does the job. That's not the way I do it, but it works.

ubuntu (which is debian)

Code:
su && apt-get update && apt-get dist-upgrade
and i personally like crux (not a newbie distro) but easy.

Code:
su && ports -u && prt-get sysup
