Wanna know what the package status "ii" and "rc" stand for...

See the green ticked answer here:
https://askubuntu.com/questions/18804/what-do-the-various-dpkg-flags-like-ii-rc-mean

Quote
First letter -> desired package state ("selection state"):

    u ... unknown
    i ... install
    r ... remove/deinstall
    p ... purge (remove including config files)
    h ... hold

Second letter -> current package state:

    n ... not-installed
    i ... installed
    c ... config-files (only the config files are installed)
    U ... unpacked
    F ... half-configured (configuration failed for some reason)
    h ... half-installed (installation failed for some reason)
    W ... triggers-awaited (package is waiting for a trigger from another package)
    t ... triggers-pending (package has been triggered)

Third letter -> error state (you normally shouldn't see a third letter, but a space, instead):

    R ... reinst-required (package broken, reinstallation required)

OK...i cant just say thats all greek to me since i can read and speak some greek, so ill have to say, thank you for introducing me to ancient sanskrit, im now sucking my thumb in wonder and really dont have a clue of understanding what i just saw...lol...could you just let me know if what i posted as the "after" readings are in line of what you and vin were hoping to see or is anything out of line there?...lol...DAMIEN

ok i think i just had "light dawn upon marble head"...the first i = desired state...the second i = current state...the only thing left to understand then if ive got this right is why did the 4.10 series come back with nada?

just gor that one as well r = remove which is the desired state...c = only the config files are installed...i think i got it...this is what happens when you get old and just dont sleep at night like last night was for me...dont worry you'll get there to...you may not be "over the hill yet" but im sure you can certainly see the top...lo...lthen like me,  you too can slide down the razor blade of life...lol

i think in my case, Ian Anderson of jethro tull said it best...how does it feeeel, to be thick as a brick...many thanks to all of you guys for help in this matter...i got one more for ya though...on the whisker menu on the top left side there is a human figure with my name next to it...is there a way to change that avatar into my coat of arms like what i have on this post? just asking...DAMIEN

ii = the package was meant to be installed, and it currently is installed .. there is no third letter, so no error.

rc = the package is meant to be removed, but currently the config files are still present (ie. it was 'removed' not 'purged') .. there is no third letter, so no error.



If you saw say 'ihR'...

ihR = The package is meant to be installed, but currently it is only half-installed (ie. the installation failed for some reason), so the error is telling you it needs to be Reinstalled.

I guess you can extrapolate the rest.

Yup. There are three fields: Removed, Status, and Error

"rc" in this case means the kernel package was removed, but the configs hung around.

Looks like they're gone now. You should be good until the next time ...

I have a *feeling* this is happening when users remove kernel packages via 'Update Manager'.

Not sure if it's intentional or a bug - I suspect intentional ...

It's intentional .. configs NEVER get removed unless the user specifically chooses '--purge' .. they're NEVER removed automatically.
