We were able to remove all packages but mapr-hue and mapr-hue-base are just impossible to remove even with brute force removal tools such as dpkg --force-depends --purge, as the following error appears:


dpkg: mapr-hue-base: dependency problems, but removing anyway as you requested:

Trying to install mapr means the script stops telling


E: Unmet dependencies. Try 'apt-get -f install' with no packages (or specify a solution).
ERROR: Unable to install dependencies (python-pycurl openssh-client openssl
libssl1.0.0 sshpass sudo wget). Ensure that a core OS repo is enabled and retry


Finally, running apt-get -f install means getting a lot of the stuff reinstalled only to end at an error.


And then you go back to remove all the modules to finally get stuck AGAIN with mapr-hue and mapr-hue-base


We are trying to reinstall it at a Lubuntu 14.4 server, as all of the sudden we could not login at mapr anymore and the node showed as being dead, even though it showed all its modules up and running.


VERY frustrating!
