You can select/deselect sections of packages as well as single packages.
If you just move the 'cursor' to the top (on 'All Packages') and press
Insert, you will select all packages. Not however, that this will not be
all you have to do because some packages conflict with each other.

Of course you can also select only a single section. I sometimes deselect
the whole 'libs' section to determine which library packages have no
dependencies on them. Then dselect comes with a large list of packages
that depend on these libs, I press 'R' to reselect all needed libraries
and press Enter. Then all library packages I don't need are deselected.
