Package: apt
Version: 1.0.9.8.3
Severity: normal
Tags: patch

Dear Maintainer,

   * What led up to the situation?

Installing a custom kernel package including a + char in the pkg name (f.e. 
linux-image-4.4.17+48-ph)

   * What exactly did you do (or not do) that was effective (or
     ineffective)?

apt-get autoremove

   * What was the outcome of this action?

It tries to remove those packages even they're excluded via 
APT::NeverAutoRemove.

See:
# grep linux-image-4 /etc/apt/apt.conf.d/ -r  
/etc/apt/apt.conf.d/01autoremove-kernels:   "^linux-image-4\.4\.17+48-ph$";
/etc/apt/apt.conf.d/01autoremove-kernels:   "^linux-image-4\.4\.21+56-ph$";

   * What outcome did you expect instead?

It should skip autoremoving those packages.

The problem can be fixed by the following patch:

This bug was fixed two months ago in 1.3~pre2. It will also be fixed
in 1.2.15, and I think we'll also cherry-pick it into the jessie
branch (obviously: no promises, though).

For further details, see Bug #830159
