The 3 GET lines are for from when the lists are downloaded from the 3 extra repositories you you are using.
There are no files to be upgrade when using the 'apt upgrade' command. When doing an update, 'apt update', you only update the files which lists the available files that are available with their version number. Your system compares what is installed against the list and lets you know what can be upgraded.
