After typing sage -i [package name], I received the error message: sage-run received unknown option -i usage: sage [options] Try 'sage -h' for more information. What is wrong? I use version 8.1

Thanks in advance!

Are you using Sage from a Ubuntu packaged version?

I can't remember but normally it should be. Now I want to uninstall sage and reinstall it. I deleted the ~/.sage folder but I can still run sage from the terminal. How come?

You are probably running some very old version installed via your package manager.
