I was testing different apps/programs that could work with my printer/scanner. One of them was VueScan. It was the only app that worked but it isn't free so I uninstalled it. Why does it still appear on my updates? (photo below) enter image description here


I ran a $ flatpak uninstall --unused and got this response

pressed y

then Uninstall complete.

AppCenter is no longer asking for updates with VueScan.

Elementary OS dev team, please incorporate this in the AppCenter when uninstalling apps.
