Uninstalls are rolled back when the project is in a bad state, this prevents the user from being able to fix themselves without editting project.json manually.


  1. Create a new UWP project
  2. Install-package nuget.versioning -version 1.0.7
  3. Edit project.json and add a dependency: "aslfkjasdfsd": "1.0.0"
  4. uninstall-package nuget.versioning

the uninstall will be allowed

the uninstall is rolled back
