Plex refuses to uninstall

I’m trying to uninstall Plex, but the app refuses to leave and is stuck at “starting”. Any tip appreciated. Thanks.

Hi @carloskruz, please try the following.

SSH into your Umbrel

and then run the following script

sudo ~/umbrel/scripts/app uninstall plex

Let me know if there’s any further issues!

Hi @smolgrrr , thank you for your prompt response. I followed the steps but got the following message:

“Removing images for app plex…
ERROR: The Compose file ‘/home/umbrel/umbrel/app-data/plex/docker-compose.yml’ is invalid because:
services.server.environment contains non-unique items, please remove duplicates from [‘PUID=1000’, ‘PGID=1000’, ‘VERSION=docker’, ‘PLEX_CLAIM=claim-_oxdLuRF7GwB_yYoaUG8’, ‘PLEX_CLAIM=claim-_oxdLuRF7GwB_yYoaUG8’, ‘PLEX_CLAIM=claim-zuezfemDyKzJhGSR-VKWclaim-7FP2ZzajE1r7Cbb-egaY’]”

Any idea what it means? Thanks in advance!

Managed to unistall. Used the command line to install plex and unistall it after:

  1. On Windows, open Command Prompt
  2. Type: ssh -t umbrel@umbrel.local
  3. Enter password
  4. Type: sudo ~/umbrel/scripts/app install plex
    5 Type: sudo ~/umbrel/scripts/app uninstall plex

Plex gone!
