For the apt backend we only support upgrades which don't require any
other package to be installed or to be removed.

It is in the end only an "apt-get update".

The blocked ones, are packages which are upgradable, since there is a new version available, but which cannot be handled by the above mentioned method.

Right, the checkbox should be insensitive.
