That would be this, from INSTALL.debian

If you are upgrading from a previous installation of Koha 3, you can
use the following:

 ./koha_perl_deps.pl -u -m # to identify new Perl dependencies
 perl Makefile.PL --prev-install-log /path/to/koha-install-log
 make test
 sudo make upgrade

After you have done that you should immediately go to your Intranet
and if there are required changes to the database you will be prompted
to login and and the web installer will do the updates for you. The
OPAC will display a "this system is under maintenance" type message
until you have done that.

I imagine that last bit would work much the same way with the
packages, although I haven't had much time to play with them yet...

Best regards,
