On Pop!_OS, I'm trying to remove an apt package that's marked as "essential". I understand the consequences and know how to make sure I'll still be able to use my system afterward. In examples and documentation about this online, it says all I'd have to do is type
Yes, do as I say! into apt, but instead of getting prompted to do that, I just get this message:
This operation is not permitted because it will break the system. Abort.
This is my own system, so I shouldn't need permission to remove whatever packages I want and then deal with the consequences myself. How can I bypass this?
