deborphan and lynx
 
I have a system which I upgraded from 8.04 to 10.04.
Every once in a while I like to run deborphan and get
rid of unneeded packages. But currently deborphan
generates a longish list of things it thinks the system
no longer needs; so long I am not sure I can trust it anymore.
Has anyone noticed something similar?

Thanks for the suggestion but I had actually tried already
and forgotten to mention it in the post: autoremove only
wants to get rid of libparted0...

From a few random checks:
$ apt-cache policy libmtp7
libmtp7:
Installed: (none)
Candidate: (none)
Version table:
0.2.6.1-2ubuntu1 0
100 /var/lib/dpkg/status
[seems ok to remove]

$ apt-cache policy libgnomeprint2.2-data
libgnomeprint2.2-data:
Installed: 2.18.6-1build2
Candidate: 2.18.6-1build2
Version table:
*** 2.18.6-1build2 0
500 http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ lucid/main Packages
100 /var/lib/dpkg/status
[not ok.]

$ apt-cache policy sysvutils
sysvutils:
Installed: 2.87dsf-4ubuntu17
Candidate: 2.87dsf-4ubuntu17
Version table:
*** 2.87dsf-4ubuntu17 0
500 http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ lucid/main Packages
100 /var/lib/dpkg/status
[maybe ok.]
[This dummy package is provided for a smooth transition from the
previous sysvutils package (the package is replaced by sysvinit-utils).
It may safely be removed after installation.]

Yeah... I'd be very wary of deborphan. So check launchpad & file a bug
report:
https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/lucid/+source/deborphan

How about trusting apt-get?

apt-get purge <package>

54 times. An hour's work at most.
