Need To Purge percona-server-server-5.6 without any prompt?

HarshadHarshad EntrantInactive User Role Beginner
Hi Team,

I am using Percona Server on Ubuntu and Debian distrributions.
I want to purge percona-server-server-5.6 package without any prompt.
I used this command to purge package `apt-get -y purge percona-server-server-5.6` .
It still prompts though i used '-y' option.

Could you tell me how should i purge percona-server-server-5.6 without prompt?

    You can run this to avoid the prompt:
    [email protected]:/# export DEBIAN_FRONTEND=noninteractive; apt-get -y purge percona-server-server-5.6 percona-server-client-5.6
    Reading package lists... Done
    Building dependency tree
    Reading state information... Done
    The following packages were automatically installed and are no longer required:
    libnet-daemon-perl libaio1 libdbi-perl libmysqlclient18 libperconaserverclient18.1 libdbd-mysql-perl libplrpc-perl percona-server-common-5.6
    Use 'apt-get autoremove' to remove them.
    The following packages will be REMOVED:
    percona-server-client-5.6* percona-server-server-5.6*
    0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 2 to remove and 0 not upgraded.
    After this operation, 141 MB disk space will be freed.
    (Reading database ... 17711 files and directories currently installed.)

    * Stopping MySQL (Percona Server) mysqld [ OK ]
    Purging configuration files for percona-server-server-5.6 ...
    Removing percona-server-client-5.6 ...
    Processing triggers for ureadahead ...

    Please note that the default setting is to not remove all databases from the datadir.

    You can then run:
    [email protected]:/# export DEBIAN_FRONTEND=dialog

    to revert back to the default frontend setting.

    Is Percona Server installed on your staging/testing environment? Are you evaluating Percona Server 5.6?

    Let us know if the above suggestion helps.

    Thank you jrivera, for your reply.
    But it didn't solve my problem completely.
    after export DEBIAN_FRONTEND=noninteractive; apt-get -y purge percona-server-server-5.6 percona-server-client-5.6; it didn't prompt me for remove files from /var/lib/mysql/.
    but it didnot removed files from /var/lib/mysql/ .
    I want to purge percona-server-server-5.6 completely.
    How do i achieve that??
