After my installation of docker in Windows Sous-System Linux by the command following:
sudo apt-get install docker.io
I regret and I’d like to uninstall it immediately.
The error occured !
dpkg told me that he can’t work well with the command sudo apt-get remove --purge docker.io.

Removing docker.io (17.03.2-0ubuntu2~16.04.1) ... invoke-rc.d: could not determine current runlevel * Stopping Docker: docker No process in pidfile '/var/run/docker-ssd.pid' found running; none killed. invoke-rc.d: initscript docker, action "stop" failed. dpkg: error processing package docker.io (--purge): subprocess installed pre-removal script returned error exit status 1 dmesg: read kernel buffer failed: Function not implemented dpkg: error while cleaning up: subprocess installed post-installation script returned error exit status 1 Errors were encountered while processing: docker.io E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)
Obviously, the error is from the process of stopping the docker itself.
We can show the content of docker-ssd.pid. It told us the pid of docker daemon is 22391.
Normally, as the docker daemon hasn’t been booted, the docker daemon process will not be in the process table. So the error is that: We cannot stop a process with a pid which has never been booted.
So the uninstallation script stopped when it cannot stop the docker daemon.
To avoid the error and then uninstall the docker, we can modify the pid in docker-ssd.pid with a pid of a process which is not so important.
Okay, we can launch sleep 200.
In 200 seconds, we can run ps -ef | grep sleep to obtain the pid of process of sleep.
