comment Why is it bad to login as root?
@StefanoPalazzo This post makes no sense with the command removed, so I've rolled back your edit--you might as well have deleted the post. Note that, contrary to widespread misconception, this command, as written, does not actually delete files when run on an Ubuntu system, but it is similar to commands that do. So if you were concerned someone might unthinkingly copy the command and nuke their system, that is not likely. See the documentation of the --preserve-root and --no-preserve-root options in man rm for details.

Wouldn't it be best to run sudo apt-get update first, so APT knows exactly what packages and versions are available for installation?

comment How to start Empathy hidden?
Even if this was only applicable to a now-EoL release, it would have been wrong to close it, because 13.04 was on-topic when the question was originally asked. New questions about end-of-life releases are off-topic, but old questions don't become retroactively off-topic this way.

revised Can I enable bash-completion for the new apt command?
removed 14.04 tag as this now applies to 14.04, 14.10, and 15.04 (see https://meta.askubuntu.com/a/13946 for details/concerns); slightly reworded question to further help people with later releases (like me) who search and find this

comment Are Ubuntu builds deterministic? Why not?
@dobey It's not just my interpretation, it's what the OP has explicitly told us about the question, in response to your edit. Asking whether or not X is the case is not at all the same as asking what causes X to be the case.
