Usually before upgrading your system, you will first be prompted to update and upgrade all packages that reside in your current installation. The entire script should look like this:

 

sudo apt update; sudo apt upgrade -y; sudo apt dist-upgrade

 

After running the script, start reading the results in your terminal. What we're looking for should look like the image below:
