Personally I find usage of the terms 'update' and 'upgrade' bound to
lead to problems; they are not far enough from synonymous in common
English usage. C.O.D. has it thus: update v.t. Bring up to date.
upgrade v.t. Raise in rank etc.
freebsd-update(8) is reasonably clear about what upgrade means, but I'm
still finding usage of these terms in pkg-update(8) and pkg-upgrade(8)
regularly confusing especially as searching either for 'update|upgrade'
shows plenty of hits for both.
Perhaps less of an issue for non-native English speakers/authors?
