No, the difference between upgrade and dist-upgrade is just that upgrade
will never uninstall packages to resolve dependencies, while
dist-upgrade will. See "man apt-get" or "man aptitude"


I see.
It's just been my experience that 'upgrade' will install packages and
not require a restart. But the few packages that do require a restart,
e.g. kernel updates, will only be installed when the command
'dist-upgrade' is issued.
