Packages no longer required!?

Hi there,

Recently I tried to install some new packages and I was required by aptitude to use auto remove to uninstall some packages.
Last time I did that osmc network package was removed and I lost half a day to solve the issue.

This time this packages are on the list:

Calculating upgrade... The following packages were automatically installed and are no longer required:
  armv7-libafpclient-osmc rbp2-image-3.18.13-1-osmc rbp2-image-4.1.2-1-osmc
Use 'apt-get autoremove' to remove them.

Should I use autoremove or just ignore this message ?


PS: just want to mention that my OSMC installation is up to date.

ssh your osmc machine and do the following command

sudo apt-get -y autoremove

this will remove packages that are no longer needed for the system thus freeing up space

My main question was: if is safe to remove this packages?


Thanks for the fast reply! :smile:
That fix it for me…

I was afraid to do this in the first place cause last time broke the network of my PI…
