Linux - when updates go wild

Once a year you might do a standard update and find it wants to remove hundreds of files that make your kde run.  I've always waited a day, but today I was in a perverse mood and said yes. 

It destroys your desktop, and when you try to do a console reinstall, it can't find anything.  This is a result of your Debian mirror going nuts when it is receiving new updates.  It takes half a day to work again.  Then you just reinstall your kde.

Better still, just ignore it for a day.  :)
