    You might need only to remove one old package or a full cleanup to ensure you can perform later a fresh Vertica installation.

    In general, before uninstalling Vertica in production always ensure that you have a backup or a full data export.
    Backing up your data prior to package uninstall is critical.
    The following uninstall instructions will delete also any data in the Database if any exists.
    It may also affect data contained outside of the app's direct components or functionality.

    First carefully review the "Uninstalling Vertica" paragraph here:

    If full cleanup is required do the following to uninstall Vertica Enterprise Edition (on Ubuntu/Debian systems).
    Do the following commands ON ALL NODES

    1.  login to root                                                                      ==> su - root
    2.  Stop spread                                                                    ==> pkill -9 spread
    3.  kill any Vertica proc                                                     ==> pkill -9 vertica
    4.  Find the name of the package that is installed ==> dpkg -l | grep -i vertica
            OR                                                                                      ==> ls -l /var/lib/dpkg/info | grep -i vertica
    5.  Remove the package                                                  ==> dpkg --remove your_packagename
            If needed to remove it forcefully do                    ==> dpkg -r --force-all pkg_name
            Once all done, run the command                          ==> dpkg -l | grep -i vertica 
            and make sure it does not return a valid value.
    6.  Delete   /opt/vertica    directory         ==>  rm -rf /opt/vertica
    7.  Delete   /opt/vconsole directory      ==>  rm -rf /opt/vconsole
    8.  Delete any Data directory                 ==>  rm -rf <data_dir>
    9.  Delete any Catalog directory           ==> rm -rf <catalog_dir>
    10. Delete any files in /tmp                        ==> rm -rf /tmp/*
