How To Upgrade To Minimize Pain

# apt-get update
# apt-get upgrade
# reboot
# purge-old-kernels
# apt-get autoremove

If you don't do the last two, things that are no longer needed will accumulate and waste disk space, including kernels, including in /boot. And if you are messing with kernel versions, you probably want to reboot to get on the latest one so that you don't accidentally auto-remove the kernel you are working with.

This is a collection of techical information, much of it learned the hard way. Consider it a lab book or a /info directory. I doubt much of it will be of use to anyone else.
