Ubuntu upgrades - dealing with things that don't get upgraded

Doing an upgrade on an Ubuntu 18.04 boxen: - 

apt-get upgrade

...

Calculating upgrade... Done

The following packages were automatically installed and are no longer required:

  linux-headers-4.15.0-112 linux-headers-4.15.0-112-generic linux-image-4.15.0-112-generic linux-modules-4.15.0-112-generic linux-modules-extra-4.15.0-112-generic

Use 'apt autoremove' to remove them.

The following packages have been kept back:

  base-files libgl1-mesa-dri linux-generic linux-headers-generic linux-image-generic netplan.io ubuntu-server

0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 7 not upgraded.

...

I wondered how to handle the "kept back" warning ....

Wonder no more ....

apt-get --with-new-pkgs upgrade

to get rid of any excess baggage.
