Since I chose nothing at the install packages step it is about to

Sorry. base-config shows a menu, where you can select what to
configure. If you select to change your package selections, it will
just do it. Just don't select to change your package selections, if
you don't want to change them!
I unchecked everything in the install packages section because I didn't
want to install anything. (I only wanted to reconfigure my time
settings). It was not the least bit clear that that would remove
anything. It looks like nothing serious was actually removed but it
looked quite serious at the time.
NB: you can use the up and down arrows to select different menue entries.
That was quite clear and there was nothing in that menu about
configuring time. I can only guess now that I would have had install
some particular package to get that choice.
