Hello to everybody!
When I was using synaptic, I remember that it showed the version changes
for every packet that was to be upgraded.
Where exactly is this information hidden? How can I see it using
aptitude, or maybe another command-line tool? I searched the internet
but I can't seem to find something...
Do you want to see the current version number of the packages and the
new version number? You can see that by using aptitude in interactive
mode (invoke "aptitude" instead of "aptitude upgrade").
If you mean you want to see what changes have been made to the
packages, check out apt-listchanges.
OK, apt-listchanges was the answer. Thanks!
The equivalent in aptitude is 'aptitude changelog package'.
Also, when you do 'aptitude *-upgrade' you can use 'c package' on the
"Do you want to continue? [Y/n/?]" prompt.
Aptitude is so great once you learn it!
