I have been doing 'wajig update; wajig dist-upgrade' thanks to Graham
Williams for probaly 15 years now. 'wajig' normalizes a few of the commands,
keeps state, and calls sudo for me.

You can always learn about these commands. It pays you back with interest.

Upstream version:  3.6.0.  What 'R --version' shows you.

Distro build: 3.6.0-2.  What eg 'dpkg -s r-base-core' or 'dpkg -k
r-base-core' shows you.

Two related but different systems.
