Use 'apt-get autoremove' to remove them.

On a couple of occasions using ubuntu-based systems a similar message with a lot of dependencies incited me to break my system.

What did you do last?

This can happen when you remove a 32-bit package on a 64-bit system.After that the system does not need these libraries and will add them to autoremove.

If it is that then safely remove (but create a system snapshot before so you can restore if anything breaks)

  • They are there since long time ago, I cannot tell what happened. I want an answer about the packages listed there. Do they include system files? I

  • @cipricus Their just 32-bit libraries that you won't need on a 64-bit system if you don't have 32-bit apps installed. So you should be able to remove them safely (but create a image of the system before)

  • @cipricus Do you have WINE installed ? These packages are installed by WINE so it should be normal if you have uninstalled WINE

  • that's it then. I have uninstalled Wine. Therefore apt-get autoremove should be safe

  • @cipricus Yes but do create a system image (you don't have to)
