I'm running 12.10 on a server and I have a list of packages that need to be upgraded. However I can run the command
sudo aptitude to see what they are and what their about which is fine. My question is, "Is there a way to see the current ones installed compared to the ones I am about to install?"
That is, can I compare the packages before saying, "Yes, take this one" or "No, don't take that one"? Also how do you say "No, don't take that one"? (sort of like cherry picking which updates I want)
