can't be certain, but I think "dist-upgrade" is used when doing a distribution
upgrade. e.g. "debian stable(woody) >>>> debian testing(sarge)"  or "redhat 8
>>>> redhat 9"

I think when just upgrading within the same version to the latest bug
fixes/patches, "#apt-get upgrade", might be more appropriate.

doing dist-upgrade previously/routinely might have created a situation were you
have some funky dependencies now existing.

sorry if i'm not very definitive.
