I would like to update Gazebo to version which fixes important for me bug. ROS Melodic's gazebo-ros-pkgs still contains Gazebo 9.0.0 which is a bit outdated. Therefore I need to remove package and install gazebo manually. However simple apt command will for some reason remove a lot more than just one package:

sudo apt-get remove ros-melodic-gazebo-ros-pkgs

Here is output:

The following packages were automatically installed and are no longer required:

Use 'sudo apt autoremove' to remove them.
The following packages will be REMOVED:
  ros-melodic-desktop-full ros-melodic-gazebo-ros-pkgs ros-melodic-simulators

As you can see it is to remove three packages ros-melodic-desktop-full ros-melodic-gazebo-ros-pkgs ros-melodic-simulators. Why so and how can I update gazebo?

Thanks!

Because ros-melodic-simulators depends on ros-melodic-gazebo-ros-pkgs, so if you delete the second, apt must delete the first.

Same for desktop-full.

@gvdhoorn it's actually as clear as it may be. I should have put the question differently here. Why would ros-melodic-desktop-full depend on ros-melodic-gazebo-ros-pkgs? Gazebo is a separate app which has actually nothing to do with ROS. And I still have no found a solution to the problem

Please refer to REP 150: ROS Melodic and Newer Metapackages and REP 3: Target Platforms. Gazebo is a stand-alone application, but ..

.. gazebo_ros_pkgs isn't (it depends on Gazebo). Second, desktop-full is a:

"batteries included" experience for users

which happens to include the simulators meta-package. And simulators provides pkgs that get used when using simulators with ROS, including the (almost) standard ..

.. simulator Gazebo. Gazebo itself is not directly depended on, but gazebo_ros_pkgs is, and that brings in Gazebo.

So: remove Gazebo -> remove gazebo_ros_pkgs -> remove simulators -> remove desktop-full.

I still have no found a solution to the problem

I didn't post this as answer, ..

.. I wanted to comment on one of the questions in your post.


Have you seen Installing gazebo_ros_pkgs (ROS 1) and Which combination of ROS/Gazebo versions to use?

This is weird, I didn't remember to have this issue when I uninstall gazebo's packages from the Kinetic version, even If I had installed, if my memory is good, the full version. In the worst case, just uninstall the full version and take the desktop one. By the way, I used synaptic to uninstall it.
