this was also my idea, however it states it is "upgrading" and executing 
the command however really nothing occurs absolutely nothing.

as i am a quite experienced sysadmin i tried out to debug alot however 
not found anything usable.

i will try with a dummy package tomorrow (using install instead of 
upgrade) if on that host it does actually do anything when using 
<install> mode
