    I run the Linux Mint variant of the Debian–>Ubuntu family of distributions. I have had troubles in the past running ‘tasksel’. For whatever reason, packages were flagged for removal or purging. Some were removed/purged immediately. Some waited until the next time I apt, synaptic, or mintupdate. Regardless, my workstation became unstable an I needed to reinstall the distro. I never did learn what provoked this behavior. I can only guess that something caused the underlying package management and tasksel to lose their minds.

      “Backup thy data!” – Very good advice. I completely agree with you.
