I'm trying to remove virtualbox from pc but I can't remove package.

dpkg can sees it:

dpkg -l 'virtualbox*' | grep ^i
in  virtualbox-5.0           <none>       amd64        (no description available)

but when I try to remove:

sudo apt-get remove virtualbox-5.0
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree       
Reading state information... Done
Package 'virtualbox-5.0' is not installed, so not removed
0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded.

sudo apt autoremove --purge virtualbox-5.0
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree       
Reading state information... Done
Package 'virtualbox-5.0' is not installed, so not removed
0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded.

How can I remove this package?

dpkg -l shows that the package is not installed in.

The first character in in means that the package is marked for installation, the second means that it is not currently installed.
