The packager --upgrade-urgent command is used to upgrade a target system with all the packages that have an urgency of High or more. The target is defined by the --root directory (or --instdir and --admindir directories.) The upgrade takes the current repository indexes in account to calculate what needs to be upgraded. Everything is automatic and assuming you did not create a repository with conflicting versions, everything should work without any errors.

The --upgrade-urgent command of wpkg is the same as the --upgrade except that only urgent packages, as defined by the Urgency field, are upgraded. Therefore the --interactive command line flag works the same way and like with the --upgrade command, you should run --update once before.

To see a list of the packages that will be upgraded, you may use the --upgrade-info command line option. This option shows you which packages are going to be upgraded with the --upgrade and which are upgraded with both: --upgrade and --upgrade-urgent.
