Downvote very much appreciated. After all privacy and verification of authenticity... that is total bullshit right? I mean the big brother NSA will just become mad... eh?

Great! how did you find out about that? man apt-clone did work? I thought via apt-file search sources.list it would tell me the package that does have sources.list.apt-clone. But since as you explained the file seems to be created dynamically and is not a part of the deb, it was not found. Anyhow thanks a lot! great answer

comment can't install libcairo2-dev under ubuntu 12.04
I have the same problem. It is crazy in the today-current(5th sept 2013) sudo apt-get update-ed packages lists that are in /var/lib/apt/lists/ there is only a mention of libcairo2 version: 1.10.2-6.1ubuntu2. Anyway I cannot even find how the 1.10.2-6.1ubuntu3 version commes up. It is here shown that the later version is an update. Still I cannot find it in any lists. In essence the 1.10.2-6.1ubuntu2 version should be working.

comment Differences of: SoftwareCenter history, dpkg-query and /var/log/dpkg.log.*?
Thank you for confirming most of my initial thoughts. I'm grateful you checked the mans (I tried that already myself prior to asking here) about the location of record/bookkeeping regarding the time/date of installation / removal of packages. Then it seems its only in the /var/log/dpkg.log.* files. That is fine I guess. Just a pitty if they ever get lost

comment How to make a fresh install while also creating new partitions and keeping encrypted home directory
How much data are we talking? Is your data of so little value that a complete backup (on a new aprox 60USD external HDD) would not be a most justifyable investment? What are the disk/partition sizes involved?

comment Where synaptic touchpad settings in user account?
Thank you @MrSeed. The trouble with that config file is that it is "global" (shared between the user accounts) and hence I doubt can be the culprit/cause because then the touchpad would not be working in all user accounts. But it is only malfuncitoning in one user account. It is indeed strange. Thank you for your effort
