Default apt-get dist-upgrade

With respect to a link here
http://www.linuxtopia.org/online_books/linux_system_administration/managing_debian_software_with_apt/ch-apt-get.en_004.html
I wanted to know if
apt-get -u dist-upgrade will update the OS version.
If I am doing just a normal update (not changing from 10.04 to 10.10)
then apt-get full-upgrade
or what should I do?

If you're running Ubuntu then I'd use the official Ubuntu documentation:-

http://help.ubuntu.com/
http://help.ubuntu.com/community/
https://help.ubuntu.com/10.10/keeping-safe/C/updates.html

The equivalent of using update manager is:-

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

This will keep your system updated, and will not upgrade it to the
next release of Ubuntu.

Ohhh thanks a lot for this information.Internet seems to be full of
misleading information and it is really difficult to pull the right
thing.

The following packages will be upgraded:

1 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded.
Need to get 12.8 MB of archives.
After this operation, 1,940 kB of additional disk space will be used.
Do you want to continue [Y/n]?
Get:1 http://deb.opera.com/opera/ stable/non-free opera i386
12.01.1532 [12.8 MB]

Not sure i understand about this two line "Need to get 12.8 MB of

be used."
Can someone please explain?

The new opera package will replace the existing one and it is 1,940kb
bigger than the previous version.

In fact the text is a bit misleading as the total additional disk
space used will also include that for the downloaded packages (12.8MB)
in this case as these are by default cached in case they are needed
again. If space is critical however this can be released by using
sudo apt-get clean
