Force package removal

Force package removal

Here is how to force package removal when post-uninstall script fails :

dpkg --purge --force-all <package>

There is another option if you need to be smarter or if it is a pre-uninstall script that fails. Look at /var/lib/dpkg/info/<package>.*inst, locate the line that fails, comment it out and try to purge again. Repeat until success!
