But why does it fail for 2 entities out of >20? I still think, that
there are maybe broken packages on the installation media the reporters
used. The 2 entities are not at the beginning nor the end of the long
list of commands.

When did I say, that "most people are not affected"? I simply cannot
reproduce it and I did not yet get any useful information. Downgrading
is like "not having to solve it".

Sorry, I cannot agree to this. If I don't get useful information I still
have the choice to add the two removal commands manually to the preinst
script to try to workaround it. Because I don't have the necessary
information I don't know, if this will workaround the issue, but it's
better than nothing.

Setting severity back.
