I tried first with core-image-minimal, and it worked.
But then I switched to core-image-sato and had the following error:

ERROR : core-image-sato-1.0-r0 do_rootfs: Unable to install packages. Command 
'/mnt/Yocto/Fabric-x64/build/tmp/sysroots/x86_64-linux/usr/bin/apt-get install 
--force-yes --allow-unauthenticated apt packagegroup-base-extended 
packagegroup-core-ssh-dropbear dpkg packagegroup-core-x11-base 
packagegroup-core-boot packagegroup-core-x11-sato-games psplash 
packagegroup-core-x11-sato' returned 100: 
Reading package lists...

Reading state information... 
Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have requested an 
impossible situation or if you are using the unstable distribution that some 
required packages have not yet been created or been moved out of Incoming. 
The following information may help to resolve the situation: 

The following packages have unmet dependencies: 
packagegroup-core-x11-base : Depends: packagegroup-core-x11-utils but it is not 
going to be installed 
E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.

I checked: The package exists in 
/tmp/deploy/deb/all/packagegroup-core-x11-utils_1.0-r40_all.deb, but it is 
*empty*. It looks as if it is just there to create some RDEPENDS in the recipe.

So... I played the game to explicitly add packages one by one to the image:
IMAGE_INSTALL_append_pn-core-image-sato = " packagegroup-core-x11-utils 
xserver-nodm-init x11-common xserver-common"

But now I have the following error:
The following packages have unmet dependencies:
 xserver-common : Conflicts: x11-common but 0.1-r47 is to be installed

So my question is:
Is using debian packages management definitely broken in Yocto? Or has someone 
managed to use it with some tweaking?

Many thanks for your feedbacks
