On a general basis I want to know which command I can use if I need to run
sudo dpkg --configure -a to solve a problem with a package but if I don’t want to continue the installation but abort it and remove the package.
Specifically, I tried to install
Citadel on my Raspberry which I aborted during the download of a file. The process was not continuing and I did not find another way as to exit the ssh-session and later kill the process.
Now, I want to remove the package, but upon
apt remove citadel-suite I get the error that I have to run
dpkg --configure -a. If I run this it tries to install the package again and I run into the same problem.
Which command would instead purge all of the installed packages and give dpkg free?
