      Is lightdm somehow needed for OMV?
      When booting my nas server, there are few error messages that "lightdm can not be loaded". When I want to uninstall it, apt want some other packages install. Why is that? Is it OK?

      Nope. And none of the plugins require it. You must have installed something that had it as a dependency.

      A package installs dependencies. If those dependencies aren't being used by any other package when you uninstall the package, it will remove the dependencies.

      It should be. I just see a bunch of perl libraries and the screensaver package.
