That's a typo. It should be:
".. on the number of local disks or the size of these disks".

But apt-get will handle this correctly, I think. So
# apt-get remove g+++
# apt-get install g++-
should be ok. And the install_packages script passes the package names
including the + or - to apt-get

That's a new feature.

This was the old behaviour. If a package name is wrong, then no
software package will be installed. This is a "feature" or a bug of
apt-get, so of FAI.
