Bug Description

After turning a computer from desktop to server by using tasksel and unselecting ubuntu-desktop the following packages was not removed:

{{{
openoffice.org-hyphenation-en-us brazilian-conjugate
}}}

Then I used the command 'apt-get autoremove', but dpkg complains and doesn't uninstall it

{{{
/var/lib/dpkg/info/openoffice.org-hyphenation-en-us.postrm: 6: update-openoffice-dicts: not found
}}}

I think that apt-get must remove 'openoffice.org-hyphenation-en-us' before 'openoffice.org'

I did this workaround to remove it:

{{{
touch /usr/bin/update-openoffice-dicts
chmod +x /usr/bin/update-openoffice-dicts
apt-get -f install
}}}
