Hi D wathi, what do you use this server for? You see there are issues with upgrading just the packages on a server where you  installed custom programs. It happens that after the upgrade some programs need to be re-configured and so forth.

So before we gie you a go ahead what is the server used for?

aptitude is being more explicit in what might happen.  apt-get isn't.

the linux kernel isn't an "upgrade" as such.  It installs the newer one as a new install rather than an upgrade. (upgrading the virtual package without the version in the name).

If it's going to be a production mail server, after you get all the upgrades and installs done, you need to be more careful in what you upgrade/install.  My suggestion would be to edit the /etc/apt/sources.list file commenting out all the repositories except the security ones.
