To update Ubuntu, I periodically use apt-get update and apt-get dist-upgrade. Is this or is this not advisable for Lubuntu on a low-spec machine (single core 2.66 GHz, 1GB memory)? Will use of it cause Lubuntu to "bloat" to the point of defeating the original design intentions of Lubuntu.

    It's just upgrading.. The same as upgrading any other way. – Seth May 7 '14 at 16:22

There are three ways to update your system; the Software updater, the Synaptic Package manager, and apt-get. I believe all three will yield the same results, so there is no danger of "bloating" your system.
