PROBLEM:I can't remove the minecraft installer and it prevents me from installing other softwares...

I tried installing minecraft a long time ago but decided to abort it instead because of the reviews i've seen in the software manager. When the time came that i needed to install new software, iinux always aborts the process and returns 'error code (2)' from dpkg.

I already tried to sudo remove it, still returns the same error, also tried sudo apt purge minecraft-installer in root but it still returned the same errors

Code: Select all

root@TKLinux-PC:/home/tk66# sudo apt purge minecraft-installer
