Since I use a pure 64-bit system, I overlooked that only one of

I think it's better to re-install imagemagick-6.q16.
And then show the output when trying to purge imagemagick, please.
I think there must be involved a i386 version of some cups package.
Celejar answered the question in the first post. It's very simple:
imagemagick can not be removed because cups-filters depends on it.
Okay, but why do packages depend on other packages that declare that
they are dummies and can be safely removed? Is this a bug in the
dummy package' description, or in the package that has the dependency,
or just unclear / misleading terminology?


Isn't this a consequence of systemd?
