	Thanks and you are correct but orca is not installed on
either of the two systems so thankfully, that won't be necessary

	I feel kind of ashamed at a time like this as I have been
working in the unix world for 30 years this year and the one
thing I do know is that one must be very careful to first do no
harm.  I will see if I can purge each of the packages that
apt-get autoremove says can be safely removed and do this one at
a time since apt-get autoremove just tries and complains if you
do it as a batch.
