What was wrong in my command line? Nothing. It did what you asked it to do -- removed iptables and, by inference, everything that depends on it. And everything that depends on those things and so on. As Kiwy points out, it is pretty reckless to run a remove -y without having first considered what might happen. I'm sensing some frustration in the ...

Debian validated that version of their operating system against all of the features in 1.0.1e. 1.0.1f added more features to openssl that have not been thoroughly tested in the Debian environment. 1.0.1g is the version with all of the 1.0.1f features and the bug fix for heartbleed. Instead of introducing those features and possible incompatibilities by ...

A Debian binary package should not contain files in /opt. Per the FHS, this is for locally installed packages only. This will be flagged by lintian. Doing this will earn you an automatic reject by Debian, assuming it gets past your sponsor. No package in the official archives has files in /opt. Placing user-level executables at the top level of /usr/bin is ...

Following the suggestion of Faheem's comment and this post, running apt-get update first solved the problem. Specifically apt-get update installed a bunch of updates, then Update Manager ran and also installed a bunch of updates. Why are there two update mechanisms (and what's the difference)? How is a non-technical person suppose to know to run apt-get ...

You ask quite a lot of questions here. You are supposed to ask one question. However... Why most distros' package managers don't allow the same package in multiple versions In some cases they do. Eg. Debian allows different versions of Python to be installed simultaneously. In most cases they do not, because it would require extra overhead, some ...

You've upgraded the package containing the openssl frontend command, but not the package containing the OpenSSL library. That package is called libssl1.0.0, and you can upgrade it with apt-get install libssl1.0.0. Debian provides libraries in separate packages so that you can install multiple versions with incompatible binary interfaces simultaneously. For ...

Well the direct route would be to go to the PCRE website and download the package you want. http://www.pcre.org/ Or download from the SVN repo: $ svn co svn://vcs.exim.org/pcre/code/trunk pcre Since you're on SuSE you can probably go poking through the SuSE Build Service and get whatever version you need, or submit a build yourself. I found the PCRE ...

The best way is to find what programs/services use the old libraries and restart them. And you can achieve it by listing all used files using 'lsof' and find those that have 'DEL' type. DEL means filename was removed from the filesystem but it is still stuck in memory because someone uses it. Here is the full command line: sudo lsof +c 0 | grep 'DEL.*lib' ...
