[Bug 413062] Re: dpkg selections
Proposed rewrite so that it fits on 2 lines (as per https://wiki.ubuntu.com/server-tips):
Use 'dpkg --get-selections > selections.txt' and 'dpkg --set-selections < selections.txt && apt-get dselect-upgrade' so save and restore package selection. 'man dpkg' for more info.
