Yep, your cli commands will pick up whatever is new on the mirrors while
using update manager or any gui will check periodically to see what's
new. I use the cli quite ofter when notifications show nothing and find
upgrades available all the time. Why do you use dist-upgrade; I always
use safe-upgrade(recommended). Dist-upgrade will upgrade to the next
release when one is available and you might not want that since Karmic
is the latest and greatest-)
