It seems like something is wrong with my python. I tried installing an upload module for nginx and it wasnt working so I decided to remove it and then re install it.
I posted on stackoverflow http://stackoverflow.com/questions/25588017/cant-remove-nginx?noredirect=1#comment39966807_25588017
The error I get when trying to remove is
sudo apt-get autoremove nginx Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree Reading state information... Done The following packages will be REMOVED: nginx 0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 1 to remove and 60 not upgraded. 3 not fully installed or removed.
