Don't exagerate. It merely wants to remove a few packages which are not
being used by anything. If anything really critical to the system was
about to be removed you would receive a warning.

The system is safe. Whether the users of it like the end result is a
different matter.

It isn't removing the whole system. The kernel and libc6 are still in
place; everything is ok with the world.

Make a note of packages you might want to reinstall; libreoffice? xsane?
Otherwise say 'yes'.
