How do I completely remove npm along with all libraries, packages and any other files installed by npm on my system by e.g.
npm install -g @vue/cli? I would probably have to uninstall from
apt, but the main question has to do with all the changes

- As there seems to be some fights about people uninstalling npm going on currently, please do not downvote just because I want to uninstall, I plan to reinstall :)
