I'm using unattended upgrades on my RPi server which is running production grade personal servers (mail server, wordpress, nextcloud). Last night, the unattended upgrade uninstalled a lot of package as if it was an "auto remove" :

Unattended upgrade result: Toutes les mises à niveau ont été

Packages that were kept from being auto-removed:

I checked the content of all the dpkg.log files I have to make sure I didn't remove a basic package by mistake but didn't find anything except ddclient mi July (and I'm sure I did some apt-get auto-remove since then).

A lot of things keep on working (and specifically all the server things which are running in a docker envt) but I lost my X server / lightdm / bluetooth and so on.

I reinstalled raspberrypi-ui-mods which brought back the desktop and a lot of the above uninstalled packages...

Any idea of what could have happened?
