I am trying to uninstall Cuda 10.1 on Ubuntu 16.04.6 LTS but I am not able to uninstall it using the instructions given on nvidia website.
I have installed CUDA 10.1 on Ubuntu 16.04.6 LTS using the instructions given here https://docs.nvidia.com/cuda/cuda-installation-guide-linux/index.html#ubuntu-installation. I performed the installation using deb(local), i.e. using package manager. I followed installation instructions given here: https://developer.nvidia.com/cuda-downloads?target_os=Linux&target_arch=x86_64&target_distro=Ubuntu&target_version=1604&target_type=deblocal.
Now I am trying to uninstall Cuda 10.1 as I realized Cuda 10.1 is not compatible with tensorflow 1.13. I tried the uninstalling by running the command
sudo apt-get --purge remove <package_name>
which is mentioned here: https://docs.nvidia.com/cuda/cuda-installation-guide-linux/index.html#handle-uninstallation. Moreover I am not sure what should be the package_name in the above command. I tried with the package_name as
https://developer.nvidia.com/cuda-downloads?target_os=Linux&target_arch=x86_64&target_distro=Ubuntu&target_version=1604&target_type=deblocal but that did not perform the uninstallation and by running the command I get below log
 2314  2315  2316  2317  Done target_arch=x86_64 - Done target_distro=Ubuntu + Done target_version=1604 Reading package lists... Doneloads$ Building dependency tree Reading state information... Done E: Unable to locate package https://developer.nvidia.com/cuda-downloads?target_os E: Couldn't find any package by glob 'https://developer.nvidia.com/cuda-downloads?target_os' E: Couldn't find any package by regex 'https://developer.nvidia.com/cuda-downloads?target_os'
But this does not perform uninstallation of Cuda 10.1. I still see Cuda-10.1 in /usr/local.
If someone can tell me where I am going wrong or what is correct forum to ask this question. I am new to linux environment so if I am wrong with some terminology, please correct me.
