Robert Euhus, as for #36,
-Strange, no such broken pipe error due to missing backslash-escape occured, 
when I tried the script I uploaded.
- You are correct, the awk regex for creating the "list" needs one more space, 
because the abbreviated status of a package seems to contain three characters, 
last of which is space (' '), if there is no error flag in the package status. 
(BTW the db:Status-Abbrev is not available in 12.04, but according to the tags, 
the fix is needed for 14.04 and later.) As for the advantage of using 
dpkg-query over dpkg -l ,  for the former you can define output format, whereas 
grepping dpkg's output, which contains header lines and some extra information 
is not a good practice IMO.
- As of the broken pipe due to exit in awk script, which awk you are using? 
Does this give broken pipe in your system?
dpkg-query -W -f='${Package}\n' | awk '/dpkg/{print $1; exit}'
(It doesn't in mine.)

Bug description:
  After installing a 3rd kernel currently 3.19.0-12-generic, the
  /etc/apt/apt.conf.d/01autoremove-kernels file looks normal listing the
  3.19.0-11-generic and 3.19.0-12-generic with 3.19.0-10-generic listed
  to be autoremoved. But once autoremove is completed the machine
  requests to be rebooted and at that time the /etc/apt/apt.conf.d
  /01autoremove-kernels file lists the 3.19.0-12-generic and
  3.19.0-10-generic kernels. So upon rebooting the 3.19.0-11-generic is
  requested to be autoremoved leaving only one kernel the latest one
