Well, I've got a slightly weird one that yours brings to mind. I've
wanted to write it up for Debian-User but haven't had the brain power.
Short version is that, for no particular reason, I decided to see what
"apt-get upgrade" would try to do the other day. I don't normally go
that route. Also for no particular reason, I go the "apt-get install"
route instead.

So... How did your upgrade go? Was anything held back?

I'm asking because if I specifically "apt-get install libreoffice"
right now, it says, "Sure, let's do it." If I  try a generic "apt-get
upgrade" instead, all kinds of Libreoffice packages get held back,
including libreoffice itself, while unrelated packages are queued up
to be successfully upgraded.
