I installed BT R3 64-Bit Gnome in VMWare environment. When I try to run "apt-get update" command, I do not get any error and it hits some repositories as well. Then I execute "apt-get upgrade" and the result is always (i.e. in the last 2 months) "0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded." Is this normal? I do expect that some updates exist sometimes within repositories? I did install synaptic. Could it crash some configurations?
Why would you excecute an upgrade? You have the latest BT5 version.....Please read more about linux...
Use the terminal and type : " man aptitude " and read thoroughly....
I see you do not have a clear idea of what you are trying to do or what you want to do...

Let's do it the right way..Read the "man" pages of aptitude. You will be amazed of how powerfull it is and all the options it has...
It won't take you more than 5 or 6 minutes..
All commands have their man pages..Read them before using it or when you see someone uses it..
"aptitude update" only "updates" the package list from repos....
And again, if you read and really try to learn the exquisite side of linux distros, read over and over the command "man", soon you will stop using apt-get...I invite you to read the "man"...You will be amazed how powerfull aptitude and other commands are as well as their options.
Hope it helps you to clear out any doubt as to why command did not do anything when running aptitude upgrade.
Sorry, did not mean to be rude and impolite.
Upgrades installed packages to their most recent version, removing or installing packages as necessary. This command is less conservative
than safe-upgrade and thus more likely to perform unwanted actions. However, it is capable of upgrading packages that safe-upgrade cannot
By BT5R2 I did always get the latest packages with apt-get update and upgrade without any problem. Now by R3 it does not work. All theses has nothing to do with wether I use apt-get or aptitude.
The repositories haven't been updated in a while.
The last 'close' (e.g. what could of been pushed out), was on (2012-08-18)
