protecting bricking Whonix / Whonix meta pacakges from removal using Essential: yes


Preventing bricking Whonix VMs on Debian dependency issues…

Such as the recent Debian dependency issues…



Desired goal:

apt-get will ask before package removal To continue type in the phrase 'Yes, do as I say!'.


Essential: yes however doesn’t work for that purpose. It results in installing package qubes-whonix-workstation on Qubes-Whonix-Gateway. Therefore I needed to git revert that commit.

This was undone. Because when adding Whonix repository and then using a multi strap (“debootstrap”) (such as mmdebstrap) it would by default install all of these essential packages which actually conflict with each other.
