[SOLVED] Debian Sid wants to remove xserver packages

I found this. If I am reading this correctly, is this the reason that many important packages are trying to be removed?

So, this issue seems to have passed. I just waited and did apt-get update followed by dist-upgrade and it no longer wanted to remove xserver and other important changes.

Thank you.
