'sudo apt-get update', then parrot on my disk grows 8GB

After using the command ‘sudo apt-get update’, parrot on my disk grows 8GB, and it take 20.7GB disk now. Is that common? Or should i do some cleanup to remove some old version system just like windows?I just worry that it will grow bigger and bigger with every upgrade.

What version of Parrot are you running? (Parrot-security-4.8 x64)
What method did you use to install Parrot? (Debian Standard)
Configured to multiboot with other systems? (no)

unwanted things can always be removed using
sudo apt autoremove
and also
for system updating related things
always use
sudo parrot-upgrade

Can you tell some More commands for updating and using Parrot os to its full potential? and Btw what is the difference between sudo apt update and sudo parrot-upgrade

well for basic commands there are tons of resources
as far as sudo parrot-upgrade is concerned, it is an alias of sudo apt update && apt upgrade
