Since the packages in the Ubuntu Trusty repos are going to be older than the ones in Debian Stretch and Buster, I would say it's a pretty sure bet that they didn't get into the OP's system, barring any Ubuntu shenanigans with epochs in the versions...
The MX Linux repositories: Backports galore! If we don't have something, just ask and we'll try--we like challenges. New packages: Kodi 18.6, Blender 2.8.2, 5.5 kernels, Chromium with va-api, Telegram-desktop 1.9.21, Clipgrab 3.8.11

I get :

Errors were encountered while processing:
 gconf2-common
 gconf-service
 libgconf-2-4:amd64
 gconf2

+ a massive list of " warning: files list file for package ...." lines, although I can cd into var/lib/dpkg/info and see a big list of packages...?

I can't seem to remove this gconf2 - it doesn't seem a massively fundamental app, but every time I try to remove I get more config problems.


It is available as appimage, why do you need to install it?
