The package name is correct, that's not the problem. The quoted error message means that totem hasn't been installed explicitly but implicitly as a dependency of another package. You usually can't remove packages that are required by other packages. You can override the dependency checks with the --force flag but it will be restored on the next upgrade.

Hello,

My question is of the same nature.

I installed Xfce but decided I didn't want to use it. I have done
upkg-remove xfce-desktop
but when i do
upkg-upgrade
upkg says it is going to install lots of Xfce applications. How do I remove all packages referencing Xfce?

Thanks!

Check the list of packages you've selected:

ls /var/lib/upkg/packages/*.select
