Remove extra dbus versions without X-server...

I did the PCLOS BU big update, and it has some bugs. (needs a can of Raid really).

So I cannot load X-server; but do have a CLI.

I did apt-get remove dbus, but got something like this:
Package list read and done
Dep tree built 

Package dbus is virtual package provided by
   dbus#1.0.2-2pclos2007   1.0.2-2pclos2007 [Installed]
   dbus#1.2.3-2pclos2007   1.2.3-2pclos2007 [Installed]
You should explicitly select one version to install.
W: blahblahblah multiple dbuses installed
What's the command to remove dbus WITH discrimination?
apt-get remove dbus [insert parameter to NOT remove dbus version x]

Apparently, removing all dbus packages withOUT discrimination will render the system inoperable...
