You may not have removed the package correctly, or
apt-get got interrupted while removing the package. First, I would suggest running the following to process pending operations:
apt-get -f install
Once this is done, use
autoremove to make sure there is no garbage in the way:
Then, remove your package completely:
apt-get remove --purge [package name]
