) you will see that
will install newer versions of packages that are already installed.
will also install new packages that are not already installed, or remove packages that are currently installed in order to handle dependencies.
Note that using Ubuntu's update manager is the same as running:
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
I always use dist-upgrade
when upgrading Ubuntu via the terminal.
Write back if you need more help.
