I take it you already removed apache2-common? Perhaps that confuses
the script (having nothing to stop should just say so and continue, not
toss an error). If so you might need to reinstall apache2-common to
get it past this.
I'd also suggest using aptitude or one of the other interactive package
tools for this sort of thing. apt-get is pretty darned good for
installing and updating, but as this may demonstrate it can be awkward
to use for rooting out all the components of multi-part packages. It's
easy to find all the interrelated parts and flag them all for deletion
in one batch, which may avoid whatever is causing that script
You arguably have quite a few inalienable rights,
but being taken seriously isn't one of them.
