I don't seem to be having any luck removing preinstalled software using 16.04's built in software centre.
The experience could best be described as a game of whack-a-mole: I click remove on something, eg. LibreOffice Draw, wait for it to process, then remove something else, eg. Mines.
Bam, LibreOffice Draw is back.
Sometimes I might get a few LibreOffice components installed, sometimes all of them. I wait, and nothing is processing. But sure enough, at some point when I go to uninstall Cheese or something, the whole LibreOffice suite is back. When I go to re-uninstall LibreOffice, Cheese, Mahjong, Mines etc. come back.
Is there a trick to removing software from 16.04's software centre?
This is a fresh install, the only package I've added is Chrome & all my software is up to date (according to ubuntu software + software updater).
Thanks in advance!
