| Instead, I use the classic Debian way == change the distribution name in

|
| apt-get udpate
| apt-get upgrade
| apt-get clean
| apt-get dist-upgrade
| apt-get clean
| apt-get autoremove

thanks very much -- that's the approach i'll take.

while i'm here -- there was talk that there was something wrong with 16.04 
and that 14.04 was preferable. as my current situation demonstrates, i'm 
not a big fan of upgrading distributions, and going only to 14.04 means i 
get to do this all over again in two years. so -- have the issues with 
16.04 been ironed out, or is it still to be avoided?

thanks again.
