This question already has an answer here:
I wanted to remove "Amazon" from my 14.04 and tried to follow the instructions given here:
However, even after logging off and loggin back in, I see that I get the updates to "Amazon":
"Online search results" have been disabled in Security and Privacy settings. I even tried to remove it from the software center by using the button provided in the above question which says there is no package named
unity-lens-shopping. And if I again try to remove
unity-lens-shopping from the terminal using
sudo apt-get remove unity-lens-shopping,
unity-lens-home is selected and nothing is actually removed and I get the following output:
Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree Reading state information... Done Note, selecting 'unity-scope-home' instead of 'unity-lens-shopping' 0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 29 not upgraded.
I just ignore the 29 packages to be upgraded, for now, should be unrelated(?)
Trying to remove
unity-lens-home I get a
E: Unable to locate package unity-lens-home error.
How do I completely remove the shopping app from 14.04 to stop receiving updates for this application?
