Package: aptitude
System: Linux Mint 64-bit Cinnamon 19.1

After a fresh install, update and upgrade, I mistakenly entered: "sudo
aptitude install " in a terminal (trailing space, no package name), which
promptly started to uninstall many packages. The system became unresponsive
afterwards and started crashing.
