dpkg-remove - program to flag for removal a package or packages
dpkg-remove marks package(s) to be held. It achieves this by running `dpkg --set-selections' and piping in the package name(s) followed by `deinstall'. NOTE: this program does not install, remove, purge any package. it ONLY sets the status of the package. any actual removal or purging is done the next time dselect, apt-get, aptitude, etc are run.
