Had a nice chat with Mike Pavlak and he recommended that I remove Python 2
from my system since I have both 2 and 3 installed, and just use 3.



I see that I have these installed:




python2

2.7.17-0

@ibm


python2-iniparse

0.4-2

@ibm


python2-pycurl

7.43.0-4

@ibm


python2-rpm

4.13.0.1-18

@ibm


python2-urlgrabber

3.10.2-3

@ibm


python3

3.6.10-2

@ibm


python3-ibm_db

2.0.5.12-0

@ibm


python3-itoolkit

1.6.1-1

@ibm


python3-pip

9.0.1-3

@ibm


python3-setuptools

36.0.1-3

@ibm


python3-six

1.10.0-1

@ibm


python3-wheel

0.29.0-3

@ibm



When I select any of the python2 items and press remove, I receive this:



Setting up Remove Process

--> Finished Dependency Resolution

Error: Trying to remove "yum", which is protected



So, my question is this - how can I remove the Python2 items from my system?
Is there another way, outside of ACS, that may be succeed?



Thanks,



Steve Meisinger
