Is there any way to remove meta package and all its packages? Subset of metapackage is packages which don't depend on metapackage by all means. That's why if remove one metapackage only the package's subset of metapackage is not removed.
For example metapackage
apache2 consists some packages which will be installed if install
apache2. I used the
apt-get install apache2 command in shell and
synaptic and I installed some packages. Now if I remove metapackage
apt-get autoremove apache2 command or
synaptic I remove
apache2 package only and other packages which are a subset of the metapackage are not removed.
In my opinion the best way is to remove all packages within the metapackage. How to resolve the issue?
