It's the "0 to remove" that was significant, ie apt purge
did nothing: no packages removed, no configuration files
removed, no syntax error, no nothing.

No chaos here: I've been installing bookwork-RC1 to attempt to
replicate problems reported by others here, though I no longer
have any MBR-partitioned disks, nor do I run exotic filesystems
or VMs either.

I haven't had the time to use bookworm beyond installing the
basic system, and there's been no real imperative to use it
as bullseye is working well on all my systems, which are from
six to nineteen years old.
