let's forget about additional packages or changed settings for the moment.
a new image should contain newer versions of packages than the images
before, shouldn't it?
so in respect to the packages installed by default flashing a new image
should be equivalent to doing update && upgrade, right?
i still try to figure out whether i need to flash or update && upgrade
does the same for me.
