As long as you use only software in debian main and contrib you'll never
need ANY license, since all software is free for all uses.

Software in non-free can sometimes be non-free for commercial use, so
you should read the relevant licenses.

If you install the 'vrms' package you can see what software is non-free.
If vrms reports no non-free packages you don't have to look further.
