The .deb install on discord's website installs a package named "discord" try running

sudo apt-get remove discord

in your terminal. Then reinstall it the same way you installed it in the first place. I don't know if this will work if you installed it a diffirent way.

Edit: I also previously got the discord message to update this afternoon, and ran the command and used this file to update discord: Discord .deb install from discordapp.com


In ubuntu 18.04 discord can be easily installed, removed with snap:

sudo snap remove discord

sudo snap install discord
