Thanks, I didn't know this new "full-upgrade" command.

Is "apt full-upgrade" equivalent to "apt-get dist-upgrade" (or apt
dist-upgrade)?

According to the man pages (man apt and man apt-get), dist-upgrade
"intelligently handles changing dependencies" when full-upgrade justs
"remove currently installed packages if this is needed".
