It's ...

I don't know if this will help, but it worked out for me. I was looking to upgrade GDAL, and since I had installed it manually from source, I wanted to uninstall the old version first. So I read somewhere (sorry but I had so many tabs open that I can't find it now) that I should just install the latest package and that would override the previous. And I read ...

In this case, it will remove packages like emacs24-bin-common.

I believe it depends on the package. Obviously, some dependencies are also dependencies for other packages, so those will stay installed. However, if you run sudo apt-get remove test or sudo apt-get purge test, then it will let you know that there are a bunch of dependencies that can be removed (albeit manually via sudo apt-get autoremove) if there are any ...
