Can you explain how you added it? Did you add a ppa? – Seth Nov 23 '12 at 21:46
Actually I am new to Ubuntu Terms. What is PPA? I added Deepin Software Center by giving a code to the terminal, which i found in a website. Installation was easy and fast. Now i have even uninstalled it smoothly with the help of @Vitor. Now there is some REMOVE PPA thing goin on, which is a bit quirky for me. Can you explain how to do it? – Swaahaa Nov 24 '12 at 7:51
See here for removing repo's and here for what they are. – Seth Nov 24 '12 at 16:50
Thanks Seth... – Swaahaa Nov 24 '12 at 19:43

There you go:

sudo apt-get remove deepin-software-center

You should also open software sources and remove the ppa that you added to install deepin software center. There's no point getting updates from the ppa if you no longer have the software.

sudo apt-add-repository --remove ppa:put-the-ppa-here – Vítor Manfredini Nov 23 '12 at 22:12
I went to Software Sources - Other Software. – Swaahaa Nov 23 '12 at 22:13

I felt this is is much better comand as it removes everything related to deepin :

sudo apt-get remove deepin-*
