Uninstalled X-Pack but it's still there?

Upgraded ES/LS/K to latest

  "name": "qrSYXO4",
  "cluster_name": "elasticsearch",
  "cluster_uuid": "IVS7Fb_fQ3mGxFbyqfM-NQ",
  "version": {
    "number": "6.3.2",
    "build_flavor": "default",
    "build_type": "deb",
    "build_hash": "053779d",
    "build_date": "2018-07-20T05:20:23.451332Z",
    "build_snapshot": false,
    "lucene_version": "7.3.1",
    "minimum_wire_compatibility_version": "5.6.0",
    "minimum_index_compatibility_version": "5.0.0"
  "tagline": "You Know, for Search"

X-Pack license expired so I thought I had uninstalled it...

root@elkstack:/usr/share/elasticsearch# bin/elasticsearch-plugin remove x-pack
-> removing [x-pack]...
ERROR: plugin [x-pack] not found; run 'elasticsearch-plugin list' to get list of installed plugins

root@elkstack:/usr/share/elasticsearch# bin/elasticsearch-plugin list

But if I look in Dev Tools ---

qrSYXO4 localhost ml.machine_memory 270376742912
qrSYXO4 localhost xpack.installed   true
qrSYXO4 localhost ml.max_open_jobs  20
qrSYXO4 localhost ml.enabled        true

Is there no way to remove it? Thanks!

X-Pack license expired

The Basic license now never expires anymore.

Is there no way to remove it? Thanks!

No. If you install it from https://www.elastic.co/downloads/elasticsearch with the Elastic License this one comes with XPack features bundled.

If you want to install a pure OSS under Apache2 License, you need to download this one: https://www.elastic.co/downloads/elasticsearch-oss

But it's great IMO to have XPack basic features available. See what is available at https://www.elastic.co/subscriptions
