First apt-get upgrade does the easy upgrades.
Then aptitude upgrade does the slightly harder upgrades (new packages).
Then apt-get dist-upgrade does the easy dist-upgrades.
Then aptitude dist-upgrade does the harder dist-upgrades where manual
intervention via the GUI might be needed.

I've found during upgrade testing this is a nicer way to do things.
