There has never been a package named mono in Ubuntu repositories. What do you actually want to install? If you want the apps which use mono, then install the apps. Mono will be installed as dependency. – Manish Sinha Mar 27 '12 at 21:04

Use sudo dpkg -r mono for uninstalling mono.

dpkg: warning: there's no installed package matching mono yet when I type mono <enter> it runs it. – Mohammad Moghimi Mar 27 '12 at 7:20
Replace mono with mono-devel if you're using 11.10. If that doesn't work, try mono:<arch> where arch is either i386 or amd64 – theonova Mar 28 '12 at 5:33
Or sudo apt-get purge libmono* – theonova Mar 28 '12 at 5:38
