How can I keep my system current using aptitude?

APT is an advanced interface to the Debian packaging system. It features complete installation ordering, multiple source capability and several other unique features, see the User’s Guide in /usr/share/doc/apt-doc/guide.html/index.html (you will have to install the apt-doc package).

aptitude is the recommended package manager for Debian GNU/Linux systems. It is a text-based interface to APT using the curses library, and can be used to perform management tasks in a fast and easy way.

Before you can use aptitude, you’ll have to edit the /etc/apt/sources.list file to set it up. If you wish to upgrade to the latest stable version of Debian, you’ll probably want to use a source like this one:

https://http.us.debian.org/debian stable main contrib non-free

You can replace http.us.debian.org with the name of a faster Debian mirror near you. See the mirror list at https://www.debian.org/misc/README.mirrors for more information.

More details on this can be found in the sources.list(8) manual page.

To update your system, run

aptitude update

followed by

aptitude dist-upgrade
