apt-get wants to upgrade some packages at the same time as you want to remove libreoffice-draw. Of course this requires downloading new packages: 8 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 4 to remove and 33 not upgraded. Need to get 27.9 MB/64.3 MB of archives. At the same time, the operation frees some space overall: After this operation, 15.6 MB disk ...

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'.

The removal is failing because the pre-removal script can't be executed with success due to the failure of the cd command (such directory doesn't exist anymore); comment this line in /var/lib/dpkg/info/spotify-client.prerm by putting a # at the start: cd /opt/spotify/spotify-client && ./unregister.sh so that it becomes like this one: # cd ...

As pointed out by ejno, it's fine: nVidia drivers depend on make, because make is needed to build the modules against the current kernel on installation / kernel upgrades: removing make without removing the nVidia drivers would have left the nVidia drivers' package "broken", so they were removed by apt-get.

This line in the output: Synchronizing state for plexmediaserver.service with sysvinit using update-rc.d... suggests that systemctl is calling update-rc.d, and the only plausible line that does this is: systemctl disable plexmediaserver.service Commenting it out or cancelling out the error from it should do the trick.

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 ...

Ubuntu software center downloads the packages to /var/cache/apt/archives. As far as I know, if you cancelled the downloads they will be removed automatically but I can not confirm this. If it does not, you can always remove them using the rm -r command.
