Re: Why was this package removed but apt?




Hi again,

A quick update:

It seems like

Unattended-Upgrade::Remove-Unused-Dependencies "false";

Is not "false" by default but indeed true in unattended-upgrades on Debian 9 (stretch)
Am I wrong about that?

Well, it was removed by unattended-upgrades according to term.log and apt.log :)

It was installed manually by me:
apt install php7.1-mbstring
So I "explicitly asked" apt to install that package actually.
So now the question is why/how did this package end up marked
"automatically installed" (or if it wasn't, why did unattended-upgrades
remove it even tho it wasn't marked as automatically-installed; tho this
would most likely be a bug in unattended-upgrades and I think such a bug
is rather unlikely at this stage).
