That does not sound clever.
"purge" also removes config files, which may not be what you want,
especially if you made custom changes to any of them.  A simple "remove"
will leave them in place (status "rc" when checking "dpkg -l" output),
so a new installation (no matter which version) can pick up on them.

Anyways, if you're in this mess on a production system, because you
chose to ignore our previous warning [0] about switching to saimaa or
disabling auto-updates, and don't have a proper backup, either, then at
least make sure to back up /etc/x2go/ *before* running a "purge" command.
