First, it is not removing most of your 'Linux component'...just a few packages, related to Gnome and X. Second, as with many of your previous threads, you omit relevant details, such as WHY you're doing this, and what you typed in.

And as before, doing a brief Google search for "how to reinstall a package on debian" leads you to the man page for apt-get. If you tried READING the man page, you'd find the "--reinstall" option:

Using the "--reinstall" option with the apt-get command will let you re-install the relevant package. If you need to be spoon-fed an answer:
Code:
sudo apt-get install --reinstall libxv1

Thank you.
I have experienced this on multiple occasions in fact I've had it remove my whole DE.
It tells me packages were installed automatically & no longer necessary & to use autoremove.
What I've done to prevent it from happening is opening aptitude in terminal & marking packages manually installed then it only removes conflicting packages. If a package is obsolete you can see it in synaptic

It's trying to upgrade to sid so it will try to remove files. You may end up with an unstable system with the sid repo enabled
Comment out the sid repo.
