Instead of running: sudo apt-get upgrade
you should run: sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
. This will install any new
packages that are in the updates.
From a lot of testing that I have done, using the GUI update-manager in Ubuntu is the same as doing:
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
Both update-manager and dist-upgrade
will remove old packages and install new ones that are in the updates. Just running sudo apt-get upgrade
will only install new versions of packages that you already have on your system.
Write back if you need more help.
