"apt-get dist-upgrade" in Redhat


Will "apt-get dist-upgrade" install patches on my machine even though a previous version of the patch wasn't found? I.e., I don't want it installing a patch for openoffice if I don't have openoffice installed.

As upgrade implies, it will only affect files that exist on your computer. You may get some new ones as a result of new dependencies, but you won't get OpenOffice.
