How Do You Get Ubuntu/Debian Linux to Have Packages That Can Be Updated When the Upgrade Command Did Not Work?

Problem scenario
You are using Ubuntu or a Debian distribution of Linux. You log in and see this (the message of the day):

6 packages can be updated.
6 updates are security updates.

You then run this: sudo apt-get -y upgrade

But it does not work. You see this message:

"0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 3 not upgraded."

What can you do to update your Linux server and not be warned about packages that can be updated?

Run this command: sudo apt -y upgrade
