I often avoid sudo apt upgrade for many weeks when my system is running well. If there is a particular need for example security or new app features I will run it. First I check Ask Ubuntu to ensure there are no new bugs reported with upgrade.

What I do when I want a new package is:

sudo apt update
sudo apt install paxkage-name

The update doesn’t remove software as happened with your Firefox.

The update will tell me X packages are upgradable but I simply ignore the message until I have time to study what will get upgraded.
