I don't use aptitude. I use only apt and apt-get but I believe apt is
just a shortcut for apt-get. `apt update` is equivalent for me to
`apt-get update` and `apt dist-upgrade` to `apt-get dist-upgrade`
(correct me if I am wrong).

My question was if apt (or apt-get) dist-upgrade was equivalent of apt
(or apt-get) full-upgrade?
