comment What is “dist-upgrade” and why does it upgrade more than “upgrade”?
Besides what Eliah mentioned, the essential point is that apt-get upgrade will not remove or add packages. If a fix to a package requires a new package, the update will be held back. pablomme's answer, which you revised to be less accurate, is better and I'd advise readers to go to that one.

comment Youtube videos are slow?
So you say videos from other sites are streaming quickly, and the problem is only with YouTube? What happens when you run Firefox in safe mode? i.e. type firefox -safe-mode at the terminal

At the risk of looking narcissistic, I just found my own answer very useful once again, so I undeleted it. :-/

comment Should I be afraid to install NVIDIA driver updates?
Nvidia drivers are particularly notorious for regressions, e.g. an update may break something, the next will fix it but break something else, etc. If you're happy with the current version, I'd stick with it.

I'd try the DVD route before USB. See this to see why.

comment How to install Lubuntu Desktop Environment and ONLY the desktop environment?
I would start by just installing openbox. This will create an "openbox" option in lightdm. Then just install the individual parts of LXDE, of which there are only a few and configure your openbox to use them. Then use the openbox session to use your LXDE-only setup.

comment DATA LOSS V V IMPORTANT
It sounds like you chose to erase over your old info... and that's what the install did. There are recovery programs and such you can try, but this isn't really a linux problem anymore.
