December update: command sudo apt update

Hi there,

after the December update the command “sudo apt update” just stops after the line

Reading package lists... Done

Is there anything wrong in my installation?

Thanks in advance,


You need to run this afterwards:

sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

Okay, after that there is the rest. Thanks for the really quick reply.

On another machine running armbian there is the output

Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree       
Reading state information... Done
All packages are up to date.

So what is the difference here?

Thanks again in advance,


From armbian documentation:

Upgrades are done via standard apt-get upgrade method

So maybe you got “update” and “upgrade” mixed?

On both machines I usually do

sudo apt update
sudo apt dist-upgrade

The second one if there is a message that there updates available after the first command.
