Hey @art-solutions,

Welcome to the community :raised_hands:

Which community node are you trying to remove? I suspect it has a bad dependency configuration looking at the error.

hi @Jon i try to delete n8n-nodes-base

can try it delete from frontend file …plz let me how!

Hey @art-solutions,

I am not sure why you would have installed n8n-nodes-base which is a core component we ship with but I would expect it to maybe not allow you to remove it as we need it to run.

You could try manually removing it from the /home/node/.n8n/nodes folder but it might be better to export your workflows, delete the volume and the image then set it up again.

hi @Jon thanks for advice …neue installation i thank is the easy way :grinning:
