Recently i have gone through tasksel command usage because of a server setup.why cant we use apt-get or aptitude there ? why Ubuntu wiki page has suggested me to do with tasksel only .is there any specific reason ? where else we have to use tasksel ?
I came home today and my Debian 8 box was displaying an unhappy face with a "oh no! something has gone wrong and the system cannot recover" message. I thought that the problem was with gnome so I attempted to uninstall / reinstall it but now I am having some serious issues more generally. I am unable to reinstall gnome or any other environment, even using tasksel.
