Update Debian Linux

I have looked at the manual and found the commands below for updating Debian Linux to the latest version:


The /etc/apt/sources.list file should be created or edited properly before the following commands work.

First, type:

aptitude update

I should see things like:

Get:1 http://ftp.kr.debian.org squeeze Release.gpg [1,672 B]           
Ign http://ftp.kr.debian.org/debian/ squeeze/contrib Translation-en            
Ign http://ftp.kr.debian.org/debian/ squeeze/contrib Translation-en_US

Second, type the command for security upgrades:

aptitude safe-upgrade

I should be able to see things like:

No packages will be installed, upgraded, or removed.
0 packages upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded.
Need to get 0 B of archives. After unpacking 0 B will be used.

Third, type:

aptitude dist-upgrade

Then, I should see the response like:

No packages will be installed, upgraded, or removed.
0 packages upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded.
Need to get 0 B of archives. After unpacking 0 B will be used.

The information comes from this page.
