I've encountered this issue in the past and I'm currently encountering it again on my desktop, but not my laptop for whatever reason.  How can a package be marked for upgrade and flagged as no longer needed at the same time?  If a package is no longer needed, what's the purpose of marking it for upgrade?

Code: [Select]
The following package was automatically installed and is no longer required:
  icedtea-netx
Use 'sudo apt autoremove' to remove it.
The following packages will be REMOVED:
  icedtea-8-plugin icedtea-netx-common
The following packages will be upgraded:
  icedtea-netx
1 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 2 to remove and 0 not upgraded.
Need to get 0 B/1,637 kB of archives.
After this operation, 435 kB disk space will be freed.
Dual-booting Debian Stable and Unstable with Openbox window manager and Tint2 panel.

old binaries left on all: icedtea-netx-common, icedtea-plugin (from 1.6.2-3.1)

all = https://buildd.debian.org/status/logs.php?arch=all&pkg=icedtea-web&ver=1.7.1-1

To be more clear let the 2 go (icedtea-netx-common is now built in)

Okay, but if the package is no longer needed, why the upgrade?  Is it because there may be some who choose to continue using the package?

The upgrade is because on 10/24/18

Quote from: Emmanuel Bourg

   * No longer integrate icedtea-web with a specific JDK
     (Closes: #743922, #642901, #712292)
   * Merged icedtea-netx-common into icedtea-netx (Closes: #798946)
   * Package transferred to the Java Team.
   * Removed Damien Raude-Morvan from the uploaders (Closes: #889448)
   * Fixed the detection of Java 10+ in the configure script
   * No longer generate debian/control from template files
   * Updated the .desktop files
   * Build with the DH sequencer
   * Use Breaks/Replaces instead of Conflicts/Replaces in debian/control
   * Standards-Version updated to 4.2.1
   * Switch to debhelper level 11
   * Use a secure URL in debian/watch

which had to be rebuilt, packed, and uploaded, which is why you see this if you have it installed

Code: [Select]
The following packages will be REMOVED:
  icedtea-8-plugin icedtea-netx-common
The following packages will be upgraded:
  icedtea-netx

If you don't have it installed and try to install it, you will see

Code: [Select]
root@x1:/home/piper# apt install icedtea-netx icedtea-netx-common
