Quoting Richard Owlett (2019-10-11 16:43:44)
I'm attempting a *VERY CUSTOM* install of Buster.
I did a plain CLI install with no apparent problem.

I logged into the new system as root.
I then attempted to do
apt-get --no-install-recommends mate-desktop-environment ...list of
other programs...

Error message was that it did not understand "--no-install-recommends"
in context.

I've done this in previous releases without problems.
What syntax have I forgotten?

You forgot to tell what you wanted to do: The subcommand "install"

Try this:

   apt-get --no-install-recommends install mate-desktop-environment

I thought I had tried that permutation.
In any case it worked this time. Did I have an additional typo?

If I had remembered the "script" command, I would have posted the complete episode ;/

Thanks all.
