[EP-tech] Debian9 full-upgrade to Debian10 likes to remove eprints

Hi Thomas,

My suspicion here is that upgrading from Debian 9 to Debian 10 removes a 
package that is an eprints dependency.  I don't think I have yet tried 
installing EPrints on Debian 10.  If I get a chance I will spin up an 
temporary VM and see if there is an eprinst dependency not available in 
Debian 10 that would cause the 9 to 10 upgrade to uninstall eprints or 
break if you try to hold eprints.

Regards

David Newman
