The buster release notes should provide more specifics when it comes
to removing obsolete packages.

The following patch makes 2 changes.

It recommends removing packages that are obsolete in stretch before
beginning the upgrade to buster.

It provides commands, instead of vague TUI recommendations, describing
how to remove obsolete packages.

Regards,
Karl
