As was mentioned by rpdom, there are differences between apt and apt-get. The differences are deliberate and for good reason.

Historically, apt-get was intended to be scriptable. It makes guesses about what to do when there is a choice, avoiding any interactive questions to an absent user. The guesses are designed to be, firstly, safe and secondly, helpful.

However, when the command is run interactively, it is more helpful to ask what was intended if there is a choice. Rather than changing apt-get and potentially breaking thousands of scripts, the sensible decision was to fork a new version, apt, optimised for interactive use, while leaving the behaviour of apt-get unchanged in this respect. Therefore, apt-get continues to be the correct choice for using in a script, whilst apt will normally be more useful when used interactively.

There was also an additional subcommand added: full-upgrade. The reason for that is that it is a more helpful name than dist-upgrade, although it does the same thing (which is not to do a cross -version upgrade of the distribution, which was frequently assumed). Again, the older command was retained (even, IIRC, in apt), in order not to break existing scripts.

FFS! Can we keep the OP question in scope instead of going into semantics.

I'm still unable to update my RPi3s and RPi4s.

I'm only open to none arrogent Raspberry Pi staff.

I'm having the same errors with upgrading on a new Raspberry Pi OS Lite 32-bit install. I changed my source list mirror to one from North America on the official mirror list ( Now I can get an upgrade. Not sure why the default source location is failing.

I used the tips on Pi My Life Up:
