No, update --list is enough. For the listed packages there will be this
action taken:
	- remove the old package

Only that the --dry-run Option does not mention the remove part, but
that I have you explained already, please read my emails.

Best wishes

One who continually bemoans the 'loss' of the word 'gay' to the
English language, even though they had never used the word in any
context at all until they started complaining that they couldn't use
it any more.
