I need to revert my version of gdb back to a previous release so that it is compatible with a certain tool. I currently have gdb 7.7.1 installed. If I enter
gdb into the terminal and hit enter, gdb runs. However, when I run
sudo apt-get remove gdb, it says this:
$ sudo apt-get remove gdb Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree Reading state information... Done Package 'gdb' is not installed, so not removed 0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded.
This is the case when I use
sudo dpkg -r gdb as well. How can I fix this so that the program is first recognized and then removable?
Ubuntu 14.04.2 LTS 3.13.0-53-generic
