When I try to remove adobe reader, it shows the following error:

jeeva@jeeva-HCL-ME-Laptop:~$ sudo apt-get remove adobe reader
[sudo] password for jeeva: 
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree       
Reading state information... Done
E: Unable to locate package adobe
E: Unable to locate package reader
jeeva@jeeva-HCL-ME-Laptop:~$ ''

Can you help me get rid out from this problem?

  • A package may not contain a space. When writing a space it's treated like two different packages – Info-Screen Jun 21 '16 at 18:52

There is no adobe or reader package.

The package is called acroread. But it is obsolete and not supported any more.
