Libraries getting upgraded today.

*Shrug* That happens every day. Most of the time, a warning will involve apt telling you it's going to remove packages that you don't want to remove (at which point you enter 'n' to abort, and then ask here).

There's no 'warning' here, so please mark it solved.

Ok :) Sorry for being over-enthusiastic.
Will keep your advice in mind next time before posting.

Don't be afraid of what, or, how much, comes into sid on a daily basis.  After running dist-upgrade, just keep your eyes pealed on the "Remove" number.  If it's zero, than, you're pretty safe to go.  If there are things to remove, then, hold back until you know why they're being removed.  And don't forget, have fun.

aaditya, a good advice I often read (and do it myself) is to use
Code: [Select]
apt-get update && apt-get dist-upgrade -dThe -d switch just loads the packages to your disk without installing them. So you have time to read without accidentally hitting (Y)es the messages about what is being removed/updated/installed.
If there is sth to be removed and not that same package again to be installed later on, you already know this place here in the forum :-). If there is nothing to be removed, just updated and new, that is pretty normal in sid so you can relatively safe  do your apt-get dist-upgrade (remember, with -d you have not done that yet, only downloaded).
Du lachst? Wieso lachst du? Das ist doch oft so, Leute lachen erst und dann sind sie tot.

Thank you, both GoinEasy9 and Der_bud for your advice and help :)

I made an alias in bash for it-
alias update="sudo apt-get update ; sudo apt-get dist-upgrade"

and I press n the first time and check what is being upgraded.
and with your help, I know what to do in case lots of things are being removed ;)
