Unable to remove 'residual config' packages in Synaptic Package Manager

I am trying to get rid of old residual config package with Synaptic Package Manager by following this link. It is strange that after select “Mark for complete removal” for some packages, the Apply button of the tool stays still grey, I could not click on it...

Could anyone help? Thank you very much!
