I just updated ros-kinetic-turtlesim. It started crashing right after the following command.

Command : sudo apt-get install ros-kinetic-rqt ros-kinetic-rqt-common-plugins ros-kinetic-turtlesim

Any thoughts ?

Yes: don't perform partial upgrades.

Always install all available upgrades for ROS (1) packages.

There is no ABI compatibility guarantee between upgrades, so if turtlesim got upgraded but one of its dependencies didn't, it's quite possible an ABI issue is now making it crash.

What is the appropriate command for "Always install all available upgrades for ROS (1) packages." ? Many thanks.

Either just run sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade, inspect the list of proposed packages and accept it or something like sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install --only-upgrade ros-kinetic* (in case of Kinetic).

The former upgrades all pkgs (not just ROS).

The latter wil ..

.. upgrade only the ROS pkgs that are already installed. It won't touch any other packages.

That is not necessarily always a good idea, as ABI compatibility between ros-kinetic-* pkgs and those released by the buildfarm that don't start with ros-kinetic-* is also not guaranteed.
