maemo is based on debian, as is ubuntu, so some of the concepts are
the same. osso-version-rx44 etc are metapackages. All they do is
depend on other packages, so ensure those packages are installed. In
ubuntu, there are packages like ubuntu-desktop which do the same.

If you remove this package, you will still get updates to all your
installed packages. However, if Nokia decide to add packages to the
base install during an SSU then you won't get the new packages
installed when you upgrade. This is an issue that has been a problem
with ubuntu upgrades in the past when people removed ubuntu-desktop
and then got a broken system when they upgraded.

Hope that helps,
