As I have mentioned many times, using "dist-upgrade" does not mean that it 
will spontaneously upgrade to a newer version of the distribution. It 
always depends on what distribution name you have written in apt sources 
lists. If you do not change the distribution name in the apt sources list 
yourself, the new version of the distribution will not be installed.

Using "dist-upgrade" means that new packages (such as new dependencies) can 
be installed during the update. While using "update" makes it impossible 
to update packages that require the installation of new dependencies.

So yes, I really meant "dist-upgrade" :)
