What is the difference between apt-get upgrade and apt-get dist-upgrade?

I just installed a copy of 12.04 Server and would like to know if I should use apt-get dist-upgrade to keep the server fully updated.

Apt-get update leaves the following behind; linux-headers-server, linux-image-server & linux-server.

You mean upgrade, not update, right? –  psusi Apr 28 '12 at 3:16

1 Answer 1

The three items not included with 'update' are a newer kernel. This is optional, and could in theory cause issues.

I have already added to my test server (for 12.04 64bit) with no issues, but that could be different for your platform.
