Fails on filenames containing spaces. The failing is hided by the fact that stderr is not shown.

comment dump dpkg package list for fresh installation
@matt: no, the information about the manual/automatic state of the packages is maintained somewhere in apt files. Also, in one of the answer to the question of which this is supposed to be a duplicate (see at top of page) is indicated apt-clone as a better solution to the whole problem we are facing: askubuntu.com/questions/9135/…

comment dump dpkg package list for fresh installation
@matt because all packages installed with the third command result as manually installed, even if they were automatically installed in the original machine. The command apt-mark could be of help here.

yes, I can, with pepper flash installed. Try to sudo apt-get remove pepperflashplugin-nonfree, then reinstall it with sudo apt-get install pepperflashplugin-nonfree
