Updating debian apt
This can also be interesting when network access is very fast but when the processor of the machine to upgrade is rather slow, since the time saved on the download is more than lost when the computer calculates the new versions of these files (starting with the older versions and applying the downloaded differences).* Fix cve-2013-1776: session id hijacking from another authorized tty (closes: #701839).

With this command, it is possible to go back to an older version of a package (if for instance you know that it works well), provided that it is still available in one of the sources referenced by the To speed up the process APT can download “diff” files containing the changes since the previous update, as opposed to the entire file.
