On Ubuntu 16 / Windows with Linux Module.

For reinstalling EOSIO, I'm just removing my eosio_1.5.0-1-ubuntu-16.04_amd64.deb


wget https://github.com/eosio/eos/releases/download/v1.5.0/eosio_1.5.0-1-ubuntu-16.04_amd64.deb
sudo apt install ./eosio_1.5.0-1-ubuntu-16.04_amd64.deb

And when I call node -v, I get 1.5; however, how should I go about removing/reinstalling the CDT? The docs say to do: sudo apt remove eosio.cdt which I'm calling in the path that has: contracts eosio_1.5.0-1-ubuntu-16.04_amd64.deb eosio.cdt nodeos.log notes.txt

However, I get:

Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
E: Unable to locate package eosio.cdt
E: Couldn't find any package by glob 'eosio.cdt'
E: Couldn't find any package by regex 'eosio.cdt'

Calling within the eosio.cdt folder yields the same response.
