Well. It's Ubuntu being friendly to the users who want it.

You choose the "recovery" item in the grub menu and you get a friendly
menu of actions.

It's on of the first things that I uninstall but it's clearly being
used by some; like the OP.

"clean" might run "apt-get clean" or "apt-get autoclean". I'd have to
download the .dpkg to find out.
