Ansible - Uninstall Ansible on Linux using pip

The pip3 show command can be used to determine if Ansible is installed.

pip3 show ansible

 

Something like this should be returned. In this example, Ansible version 2.9.12 is installed.

Name: ansible
Version: 2.9.12
Summary: Radically simple IT automation

Author: Ansible, Inc.
Author-email: info@ansible.com

The hash command caches the paths to commands, and if a command is relocated then bash will not pick it up unless that cache is cleared. Issue the following command to clear Ansible from the cache.

hash -d ansible

 

Use pip3 to uninstall ansible.

pip3 uninstall ansible

 

Something like this should be returned.
