When I log into my server I see this

186 packages can be updated.
119 updates are security updates.

How do I see what needs to be updated and then update it?

apt-get update && apt-get upgrade

When i try to run this( sudo apt-get dist-upgrade) command shows this error

E: dpkg was interrupted, you must manually run ‘sudo dpkg –configure -a’ to correct the problem.
