Upgrade Warnings (DE / EN) / Re: apt autoremove - careful
« Last post by DeepDayze on Today at 18:41:27 »
Plain autoremove should leave the config files intact unless you used the purge option with autoremove which will remove all traces, thus reinstalling the removed packages will merely install default configs.

So yes it's wise to double check to see what's being autoremoved just like with what's being removed via a DU.

Yes unklarer, while I usually do a translate to all Upgrade Warnings that aren't in English, I certainly missed this one.

Thanks finotti, but I spent an hour reinstalling everything that autoremove logged, and the result was a very damaged desktop. I gave up trying to fix it.

Thanks for the responses ... heh, lesson learned. I guess you CAN teach an old dog new tricks. :-)

The problem must be related to KDE as my XFCE and X-org "Fluxbox" went without a problems.

After doing my full-upgrade I usually run apt autoremove. I've been doing my upgrades like this for years without incident. This time autoremove destroyed my install. It's not like we weren't warned about using autoremove way back in the sidux days, but, I became comfortable using it and didn't check what it was going to do carefully. So, I had to reinstall my siduction kde install.

BTW - There's a thread on the debian-kde mailing list about dist-upgrade causing the same damage my autoremove caused. Whether doing a dist-upgrade or autoremove, seeing that it wants to remove plasma-desktop should be a clue.

For future reference, you can look at /var/log/dpkg.log and see what was removed and reinstall.

I assume you missed this thread.

I always use the du and the autoremove and have for years. No mistakes. I just have to read...   :D

Hi,
the installation of Farewell fails while installing it from siduction-21.2.0-farewell-kde-amd64-202107281755.iso, md5sum o.k., sha256sum o.k.,
at the last step in installation: at Update.

Error message: see (german) attachment.

Any idea to solve the problem? Is it a bug?

Thanks ...

Thanks towo

Downloading now, I'll let you all know how it works out.

Edit: The iso listed by towo in the previous post works.

There you find a new set of isos, which have the valid repo-keys preinstallad.
