Hello Everyone,
I'm trying to remove my residual configuration packages, however, after selecting them all and clicking "Mark for Complete removal," the apply checkmark remains unclickable. Any help please?

That's very strange , try un-marking the packages then reload synaptic and try again .

I've tried that before, yet it didn't seem to work. Is this an issue with Natty Narwhal? It worked fine in Maverick Meerkat and Lucid Lynx.

If you boot the machine, can you run


sudo apt-get clean
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade
sudo apt-get remove --purge <package-name>
