Why this throws errors

sudo-apt-get remove amazon

The problem here is multiple

  • its sudo apt-get remove PACKAGENAME not sudo-apt get PACKAGENAME
  • You are guessing PACKAGENAMES (amazon) here

How to locate package names and remove them

I would recommend to check what packagename you need to remove first and then remove it.

You could filter all installed packagenames for the string amazon first like this

sudo dpkg -l | grep amazon

This should output all installed package-names containing the string amazon.

Then - if you know which packagename you want to remove do as follows

sudo apt-get remove PACKAGENAME

or

sudo apt remove PACKAGENAME

As @Saikat Kundu mentioned already - the packagename you are looking in this particular case is unity-webapps-common.

Hope this helps understanding apt

Try this:

sudo apt-get remove unity-webapps-common
