Here is how you can remove packages from your computer: (“How can you completely remove a package?,” n.d.)
sudo apt --purge remove packageName
Then after that, to remove the dependencies that were just used by that package and aren’t used by any other package anymore:
sudo apt --purge autoremove

.). You have to delete those manually.
Hope you learned something useful!
