I prefer to download first, before installing any updates, making it 5 steps:

Update the sources

apt-get update

apt-get dist-upgrade -d

apt-get upgrade

apt-get dist-upgrade

I have had issues in the past with a loss of network connectivity mid update causing serious issues.

I’ll try above method definitely. It makes sense. Bad network connecting during the upgrade process causes some time irreversible problems.
