The man page of apt-get is very clear on this:

--- cut ---

upgrade
       upgrade  is  used to install the newest versions of all packages
       currently installed on the system from the sources enumerated in
       /etc/apt/sources.list.  Packages  currently  installed  with new
>>>    versions available are retrieved and upgraded; under no  circum-
>>>    stances  are  currently  installed packages removed, or packages
>>>    not already installed retrieved and installed. New  versions  of
       currently  installed  packages  that  cannot be upgraded without
       changing the install status of another package will be  left  at
       their current version. An update must be performed first so that
       apt-get knows that new versions of packages are available.
