The message started a recognizable abbreviation of "ignored".
For a character perfect quote - where would it be logged?

apt-get update > /tmp/somefile


OK, I mis-remembered which line had "Ign". Here is redo:
Hit:1 http://security.debian.org/debian-security stretch/updates InRelease
Ign:2 http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian stretch InRelease
Hit:3 http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian stretch Release
Reading package lists...

So I redid the apt-get install which got me problem chasing,
(apt-get install xorg lightdm lvwm) whose captured output was:
Reading package lists...
Building dependency tree...
Reading state information...

That was followed by an uncaptured line saying:
E: Unable to locate package lvwm

lvwm doesn't exist.

Baaaaaaaaa Baaaaaaaaaaa
