I have already tried doing this:

sudo apt-get remove brackets

but I always get the following error

Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree       
Reading state information... Done

No apt package "brackets", but there is a snap with that name.
Try "snap install brackets"

E: Unable to locate package brackets
  • How about sudo snap remove brackets then? – Jos May 14 at 16:42
  • or if you installed it from the Ubuntu Software Center go back into USC and uninstall from there? – Graham May 14 at 17:06
  • yeah thats working thanks @Jos – naga Storage May 14 at 17:29

As you can see from APT logs, brackets has been installed as a snap package.

In such case you can remove your snap package with:

sudo snap remove brackets

You can also use Ubuntu Dock -> Applications -> Ubuntu Software to remove an installed APT or snap package.
