Sometimes I want to upgrade a package, for example, I wanted to upgrade a few now and then I got this dialog box that says some packages will be UNinstalled too.

I definitely don't want them to be uninstalled. I couldn't figure out why this is happening and only after digging deaper did I notice that some dependent package was missing. I assume that if the dependency chain is broken, then NPackd wants to remove the package.

This will be confusing for other users too. My suggestion is that dependency chain management/validation is done separately from when I want to install pacakges and also that when you show the packages, give a better reason for why they want to be removed. In fact, a "Fix dependencies" function would be better.

It makes sense to implement this.
