Yes, thats sufficient normaly.

What you saw where these.
apt update - update the package list and versions in cache localy.
apt upgrade - upgrade packages. (optional --autoremove --purge)
--autoremove remove unused packages (related to other packages you removed)
--purge cleanup any leftover files
And the option.
If a packages needs an extra package that isnt installed yet, it stalls,
This might prevent you from breaking the system or it did break it.
Then dist-upgrade is the option.
( prefered with --autoremove --purge )
I hope that explains abit.
