Don't fail the build if the APT lists don't include any package whose name matches ^geoclue.3.9-rc1
The build of my first tentative 3.9~rc1 ISO failed with: E: Unable to locate package ^geoclue* E: Couldn't find any package by glob '^geoclue*' E: Couldn't find any package by regex '^geoclue*' E: config/chroot_local-hooks/98-remove_unwanted_packages failed (exit non-zero). You should check for errors. That's because the partial, tagged APT snapshot used to build this ISO don't include any package whose name matches ^geoclue. So let's only attempt to remove such packages if at least one of them is installed.

Such changes can break Tails after an automatic upgrade was applied
so let's detect it ASAP. Consequently, ensure a few GIDs — that wanted
to play musical chairs — are the same as in Tails 3.8 (Closes: #15695).
