Not to sound rude, but Unix and Linux don't have a recycle bin. When you
delete or change a file, its done.
I suggest you run deslect and add the packages manually (+ to add), or...
You can create a list of the packages it wants to delete and add them
apt-get install `cat listoffiles`
apt-get install package1 package2 ...
