That's right. In Trusty, you may not be permitted to remove the ntpdate
package without removing a task metapackage (generally undesirable).
IIRC, I noted in the ML thread some options to disable ntpdate instead.

Since Xenial, it makes sense just to not have ntpdate installed at all,
IMHO. Though I still welcome further discussion if there are use cases
this breaks.
