comment Can you determine which packages are not being used at all when running a specific program
It's custom software that we use to record data from a instrument connected to a serial port. I was hoping to make the distro as small as possible, but I reckon it's going to be more effort than it's worth if I want to stick to Ubuntu. Thanks for your inputs.

According to that output, your network is down. If you are sure your switch and cable are good, type the following command: sudo ip link set dev eth0 up , then run the previous commands again to check your state

I am personally a big fan of arch and run it on my desktop, however these systems will be installed in remote locations and need to be maintained by people who have limited Linux knowledge. We standardise on Ubuntu to keep a "central" knowledge base and to make "fault finding" simpler across multiple sites.
