Wiki DVD Installation Instructions - conflict?

Hi All, I am confused by the DVD Installation Instructions. It advises:

Code: [Select]
Upon DVD boot, select LinuxMCE install(it is the bottom option). This will install a regular Kubuntu 810 system, with an additional button on the desktop to install LinuxMCE upon restart.
Let Kubuntu's  install run through, and after restart, login. Open a terminal and run

sudo su - #This might ask for the password you specified earlier during the install of kubuntu.
apt-get update
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade


But then at the bottom of the page it says:

Code: [Select]
Note: You should NOT run apt-get dist-upgrade after the initial install, as it can cause several problems, including having different kernel versions on your core and media directors, and the installation of new Kubuntu packages that can break some features!
Am I missing something obvious or does this contradict itself? I did the

Code: [Select]
sudo su - #This might ask for the password you specified earlier during the install of kubuntu.
apt-get update
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

Before running the Linxumce icon - now MythTV doesn't appear to be installed or available in computing?

Have I now busted something and should reinstall?

I think it means after you have linuxmce installed, don't run apt-get dist-upgrade.  I just did it the other day, and it broke mythtv.  Instead run apt-get updrade.
