How to install updates


I have Debian 6.0.6. After doing an

# apt-get update

and rebooting the computer I received the following notification:

There is 17 updates and 16 security updates available

How can I install those updates?

I personally upgrade my Debian system using:

Code:
apt-get update
apt-get dist-upgrade
For more info see

Code:
man apt-get
or the fine Debian documentation.

you can do:

$apt-get update upgrade

to download and install new versions of packages.

$apt-get dist-upgrade

to get the current stable version of your distribution.

This is incorrect; please see:

Code:
man apt-get
for the truth.
