Apititude (apt-get install aptitude) does some of what you're looking
for. It allows you to select packages to install/upgrade from a menu, as
well as showing which packages are installed, not installed and
upgradeable. I find it easier to deal with than the dselect tool that
Debian uses for its installation.
