Subject: obsolete version of timezone won't remove
Content-Type: TEXT/PLAIN; charset=US-ASCII
I have the new version (called timezones I think) installed, but I can't
seem to remove the old version (timezones). deselect doesn't complain
when I deselect it, but when I actually try to remove it I get:
dpkg: error processing timezone (--remove):
This is an essential package - it should not be removed.
Any ideas on how to proceed from here? Thanks.
