It should be quite safe. Autoremove removes only packages, which were installed by dependency of a removed package. They should not be needed. You are correct. Your system should be as before you installed 'packagename'.

You have two options Change the dependencies and use the latest libgcrypt libgcrypt20 does not exist without reason. Install libgcrypt11 and use an old version of libgcrypt Change the dependencies First, remove the previous installation of Springseed: sudo apt-get remove springseed Download the latest Springseed version here, eg: cd wget ...

The final release of Ubuntu 15.04 no longer keeps the package libgcrypt11, rather libgcrypt20 as you have come across by the Synaptic Package Manager. All you have to do is to download the package from here and then install it prior to Springseed. You may earn additional knowledge from this source pointing out similar problems with other apps besides ...

By default, the package manager refuses to overwrite files that also appear in other installed packages (whether the file is actually there or not), which is a sane decision to not inadvertently corrupt packages. In your case, this means, that the packages are incompatible. I can see that one seems to come from a PPA, so you should write to the maintainer of ...

Autoremove only removes orphaned packages. Meaning that it is completely safe to use without disrupting any functional or currently installed programs.

It is quite safe most of the times, but when you use it you must check your terminal for the names of the packages that are about to be removed because sometimes errors happen. Do not agree to the removal of dependencies without having double checked the names of the packages that are about to be removed and see if there is any that shouldn't normally be ...

You have most likely set up a new machine and encrypted your system. Press ALT and F2 together. Type--> software-properties-gtk and select it. Select the other sources tab. Make sure the boxes that say "canonical partners" and "canonical partners (source code)" are both checked. Agree to the requested update. You should now be able to install ...

This likely can't be resolved in 1 simple answer but for starters your issue, or one of, comes from a ppa that seems to have been removed https://launchpad.net/~n-muench/+archive/ubuntu/programs-ppa It used to have trusty packages - ex. https://launchpad.net/~n-muench/+archive/ubuntu/programs-ppa/+build/6277936 That is causing this issue libgmp10 : ...

It's a mess as you say this must be due to problems in your repository & PPA sources I suggets to clean the mess first : start with sudo apt-get install gksu sudo apt-get install gedit Then gksudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list There, on the file that opens you replace all with proper sources.list generated there : http://repogen.simplylinux.ch/ (check ...

From this post at Linux Mint Community: "Gnome isn't extremely compatible with Linux Mint. It works but other operating systems probably work better. Ubuntu 14.04 for example. You can even download a gnome version for it. http://ubuntugnome.org/ Another operating system that is gnome-based is Fedora. Also, I haven't managed to install extensions ...

According to Ubuntu Community Help Wiki, try running: sudo apt-get -f install From the help page, This command does the same thing as Edit->Fix Broken Packages in Synaptic. Do this if you get complaints about packages with "unmet dependencies". Then if you still experience problems, run sudo apt-get check and report back.
