I installed cloudflared on my debian system and I can no longer access any other software remotely. I’d like to uninstall it but
apt-get remove cloudflared
Package ‘cloudflared’ is not installed, so not removed
I Installed using these] instructions from
sudo mkdir -p --mode=0755 /usr/share/keyrings
https://pkg.cloudflare.com/cloudflare-main.gpg | sudo tee /usr/share/keyrings/Cloudflare-main.gpg >/dev/null
echo ‘deb [signed-by=/usr/share/keyrings/Cloudflare-main.gpg]
https://pkg.cloudflare.com/cloudflared buster main’ | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/cloudflared.list
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install cloudflared
Any help is appreciated. I’m not extremely well versed in Linux command lines but I’m trying to learn.
This means that the software has already been removed. If you run
which cloudflared do you get any output?
Additionally, if you’re still having trouble (after it’s uninstalled) you may need a reboot to completely flush it.
I get no response when I run
which cloudflared. However when I run
sudo apt-get update
The first hit is
Hit:1 https://pkg.cloudflare.com/cloudflared buster InRelease
several times but still the same issue.
apt-get update updates the package cache of your system. It doesn’t actually mean that the package is installed, it merely asks the remote repository whether there is an update.
To resolve this completely, you can run (make sure it’s exactly like that, a typo in this command can be bad):
sudo rm -rf /etc/apt/sources.list.d/cloudflared.list
You may have to enter your account password.
Ah I see. Thank you for that. I ran the command and I assume it worked since now when I run
sudo apt update
Cloudflared is no longer in the list.
However, everything is still running at a snails pace. I don’t remember uninstalling cloudflared. I wish I had a backup right before I installed this so I could go back to what I had before.
This isn’t really a Cloudflare issue, but you can try running
htop to see what is using resources. You might need to install it
sudo apt install htop.
Wow! That’s useful. I’ve been running a service called “sysmon” to achieve the same thing. This is way more convenient, thank you.
But you’re right, no line item for cloudflared so I’ll assume that its not causing any issues at this point. Thanks again for the help everyone.
