5.3.2 Using apt-get

     # apt-get update
     # apt-get -t stable upgrade
     # apt-get -t stable dist-upgrade
     # apt-get -t testing upgrade
     # apt-get -t testing dist-upgrade
     # apt-get -t unstable upgrade
     # apt-get -t unstable dist-upgrade

Once your system has reached Sarge it is advisable to use aptitude instead of apt-get. (aptitude accepts many of the options that apt-get accepts, including those above.)

To upgrade and stay with current dselect settings:

     # apt-get dselect-upgrade

See Package dependencies, Section 2.2.8.
