This question already has an answer here:

I'm trying to upgrade my packages and there were some packages that were automatically installed and are no longer required. What should I do? I'm asked to use 'apt-get autoremove' to remove them, but are they important? Will removing them break something on my system?

The following packages were automatically installed and are no longer required:
    linux-headers-3.13.0-24 linux-headers-3.13.0-24-generic
    linux-image-3.13.0-24-generic linux-image-extra-3.13.0-24-generic
Use 'apt-get autoremove' to remove them.
0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded.

From man apt-get:

autoremove
           autoremove is used to remove packages that were automatically installed to satisfy dependencies for other packages
           and are now no longer needed.

So, Don't worry, It is safe to auto-remove packages by following command:

sudo apt-get autoremove
