32-bit Ubuntu 16.04 LTS, all updates done. Says that libreoffice-pdfimport package is no longer required. Would like to autoremove other unnecessary (orphaned) packages but libreoffice-pdfimport should stay. Would it be possible to arrange so that system understands that this package is actually required? Using PPA and LibreOffice 6.0.4.

Strange behaviour is that on some machines this libreoffice-pdfimport package is not marked as orphan - only rare cases. When to look those tests then really the pdfium is better. The question remains - why is old one still used while new one is better? The libreoffice-pdfimport is still packaged for 6.0.4 version... Thanks for information about pdfium!
