    Programs Starting to be Removed:

    Just did most recent update in synaptic. It called to remove (which I allowed it) several programs including the "shutter" program with is a screenshot program -(can't figure that one out).

    Re: Programs Starting to be Removed:

    Weird, I updated this morning, there was nothing in central repo (US) for me. And now all I got is a bunch of perl stuff held back and it is just upgrading stuff (no removal).

    Code:
    The following packages have been kept back:
      libalgorithm-diff-xs-perl libapt-pkg-perl libcairo-perl libfolks25 libglib-perl libgtk2-perl
      libhtml-parser-perl libio-pty-perl libjson-xs-perl liblocale-gettext-perl libnet-dns-perl
      libnet-ssleay-perl libpango-perl libsnmp15 libsocket6-perl libsub-name-perl
      libtext-charwidth-perl libtext-iconv-perl libuuid-perl libxml-parser-perl libyaml-syck-perl perl
      perl-base perl-modules perlmagick sessioninstaller
    The following packages will be upgraded:
      aisleriot apparmor dh-translations firefox firefox-globalmenu firefox-gnome-support
      firefox-locale-en firefox-locale-es firefox-locale-pt firefox-locale-zh-hans gir1.2-totem-1.0
      gir1.2-vte-2.90 gnome-accessibility-themes gnome-icon-theme gnome-icon-theme-full
      gnome-settings-daemon gnome-themes-standard imagemagick initscripts libldap-2.4-2
      liblightdm-gobject-1-0 libmagick++3 libmagickcore3 libmagickcore3-extra libmagickwand3
      libpurple-bin libsnmp-base libsyncdaemon-1.0-1 libtotem0 libvte-2.90-9 libvte-common libvte9
      libxmmsclient6 libzbar0 lightdm lightdm-gtk-greeter locales python-ubuntuone-client python-vte

    If you go to Ubuntu Software Center there is a tab HISTORY. Click it to see what happened.

    There's a Perl transition in progress right now so everything requiring perl needs to be rebuilt:

    Thanks castrojo. I am just wondering if these removals and transitions will lead to possible breakages.

    thanks.

    Ok .. the dev more or less says that there will not be too much disruption. Hmmmm ?

    Re: Programs Starting to be Removed:

    For me all the packages are held back (which is what is supposed to happen).

    If something is wanting to be removed it's because you're trying to do a partial upgrade, probably a setting with synaptic or something (I'm not familiar with it).
