I was trying to install Redis on Ubuntu using:
sudo apt install redis-server
The process partially installed and timed-out and the redis-service was not installed.
After that I tried to remove the installation:
sudo apt remove redis-server
and still the uninstall is hanging (over 30 minutes) and not progressing:
Use 'sudo apt autoremove' to remove them. The following packages will be REMOVED: redis-server 0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 1 to remove and 202 not upgraded. After this operation, 919 kB disk space will be freed. Do you want to continue? [Y/n] Y (Reading database ... 300372 files and directories currently installed.) Removing redis-server (2:3.0.6-1ubuntu0.3) ...
Is there a way to remove this package other that using
