Didn't the rest of this thread say "update" is deprecated in favor of
Damn, I wish the developers would leave this alone! "Update" has always
meant "update to the latest release of software on the _current_ OS".
"Upgrade" has always meant "upgrade to the _next_ OS". They're
entirely different things. But I guess that's too unambiguous for the
developers who insist on obfuscating things and trying to prove they're
smarter than use poor users and sysadmins.
That has not been the case on Fedora which instead had used other tools to
carry out release upgrades.
And actually it's not even that on Debian where update grabs metadata and
upgrade actually upgrades packages.
