I just did a fresh install of Elementary OS 6 Odin and I installed apps that I need and uninstalled these I don't need, so I uninstalled Epiphany and Camera app from AppCenter. After few hours I realised I still have these apps in Application Menu... I tried sudo apt-get autoremove, I also tried sudo apt-get remove epiphany-browser. It doesn't work. I don't have these apps in /usr/share/applications or ~/.local/share/applications. When I try to uninstall them using Application Menu I get the popup saying Program status is not set as Installed in AppCenter for package: Web Browser for GNOME. Anyone have a fix for this?

Use the menulibre to do this: sudo apt install menulibre


Elementary has moved to a new app format - Flatpak. This means that apt commands won't work. To view all Flatpak apps, use flatpak list. To uninstall an app, use flatpak uninstall [app name]. For example flatpak uninstall org.gnome.Epiphany should uninstall Epiphany/Web browser and flatpak uninstall io.elementary.camera should remove the Camera app.
