How to apt-get upgrade?


I heard that apt-get upgrade command used to upgrade the packages up to date,
but when I tried to use it, there was no upgrade for me. my commands were

apt-get update
apt-get upgrade
then system show
Reading Package Lists... Done
Building Dependency Tree... Done
The following packages have been kept back:
arts bind9-host dnsutils kdeedu klettres kstars libarts1 libnspr4 libnss3
mozilla mozilla-browser mozilla-mailnews mozilla-psm
0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 13 not upgraded.

Why the 13 packages were not upgraded?

Not directly related, but...

...sometimes, with SUSE 9.1 (via APT), I've had to remove packages and then reinstall them afterwards. Why it works this way (with SUSE/APT at least), I don't know.
