debpartial-mirror is a command-line tool to generate partial Debian packages archives mirrors. It is designed to work (in particular) in Custom Debian Distributions framework, as an aid to create customization of debian systems.
  Partial mirrors can be generated from different apt repositories (local created or remote ones) and can contain binary as well as sources packages.
  Generated partial mirrors have the structure of standard apt repositories: please referr to APT documentation for explanation about this.
  debpartial-mirror uses a configuration file to determine which packages, are to be downloaded and monitored to generate a local partial mirror. Packages can be specified by regular expressions, by list or by mirrors sections.
  Default configuration file is /etc/debpartial-mirror.conf.

all all is used to perform both update and upgrade commands.
