Updating mandrake packages

You have to run apt-get autoremove –purge `deborphan` multiple times but it’s not really enough because the program is not detected by deborphan.

Just remember all the old cupsys stuffs, gnome-volume-manager, things like that. Problem 1,2 and 5 imply that geeks will just reinstall their Ubuntu by formatting the / partition. I’ve installed Ubuntu to a lot of « normal » users. They will then just discover a black screen with blinking lines of text.

Also, sometimes it looks like it is finished but launching apt-get dist-upgrade once again shows more than 300 non upgraded packages with are in an unknown state.

I don’t believe users have to learn that concept but it has some consequences Upgrading is way too slow. Why could it not start to upgrade a part of the system as soon as some packages are already downloaded ?

Also, there’s very few feedback that the system is actually doing something.
