I cannot remove apps like VoiceCallUI

When doing devel-su pkcon remove voicecall-qt5 the system response is “Error: this request could damage the system”

Why would you remove the phone application? Reinstallation should be possible.

If you still want to remove it, use zypper.

Thank you! I didn’t know zypper allows more actions than pkcon.
I made this because I want to reinstall the phone app: after update to the call is not working anymore.
What is strange is that I have two different plugins for voicecall.
voicecall-qt5-plugin-telepathy-0.8.0-1.9.1.jolla.aarch64 installed is in conflict with ‘voicecall-qt5-plugin-ofono’ fornito da voicecall-qt5-plugin-ofono-0.8.0-1.9.1.jolla.aarch64

Yes, that’s correct, trying to remove the voicecall-ui app will break your system. Also, reinstalling can cause problems, so that is disallowed generally.

devel-su pkcon remove voicecall-ui-jolla

would be the command to remove an app, but in this case, you are disallowed. In the same way that

devel-su pkcon install voicecall-ui-jolla

would be apt to install, but this often yields the same message we see upon removal.

Sounds to me like the OS update botched something. If it were me, I’d do the update again…

On my 10iii with 4.5 there is no voicecall ofono plugin only tge telepathy one.

If you want to reinstall the package, you could do this with zypper install --force, so you don’t have to uninstall first.
