'apt-get update' _updates_ the package availability list, which is
( I think ) what was being asked about.
'apt-get upgrade' upgrades all available packages that don't involve
'apt-get dist-upgrade' upgrades everything, and is willing to
install/remove/temporarily-break stuff to do so.
'apt-get install <X>' installs the latest version of <X>, asking you
if there are extra dependencies/conflicts/etc.
'apt-get remove' removes stuff.
