Cannot uninstall Language Pack 0 because it is not deployed

SharePoint 2013 is really a good product w.r.t. functionality and awesome GUI to work with! But today’s article is based on the error that I faced while updating the solution.

If you find a different solution, please report it as a comment to this post. Be sure to double-verify it: undo your solution and verify that the problem comes back, then redo it and verify that the problem goes away.

Here is the error message:
Cannot uninstall Language Pack 0 because it is not deployed when attempting to uninstall-spsolution

One thing we always need to understand is the logic would be same for the functionality irrespective of which SharePoint version you are working!

What’s that funda? – Here we go:
If you are facing this error message then I would suggest checking the status of your solution in central administration. How to check this? Here are the details:
o   Central Administration
o   System Settings
o   Manage Farm Solutions
o   It will open the solution management
o   Here you can check the status of your solution

If your solution is showing updating, deploying or retracting status then first and top most check that you need to verify the status of your TIMER JOB across all WFE’s.  How to check this? – Here are the details:
o   Login to your web front end (WFE)
o   Start
o   Run
o   Type “services.msc” and hit enter
o   It will open the services console
o   Click on any service and press S
o   It will directly show you the SharePoint Services
o   Second service will be SharePoint Timer Service
o   Check the status across all your servers

Two outcomes will be there:
1.   Timer service will be stopped one of the server:
If this is the case then start the timer job on that specific server and check the results by executing the commands that you are using.

2.   Timer service is started on all the servers:
If this is the case then restart all the SharePoint Timer Services across all servers. Once this done then execute the commands that you are doing and check the results

Details notes:
Add-SPSolution -LiteralPath c:\nameofyoursolution.wsp

Install-SPSolution -Identity nameofyoursolution.wsp –GACDeployment

Uninstall-SPSolution -Identity nameofyoursolution.wsp

Remove-SPSolution -Identity nameofyoursolution.wsp

Update-SPSolution -Identity nameofyoursolution.wsp -LiteralPath c:\nameofyoursolution.wsp -GACDeployment

If you have any queries/questions regarding the above mentioned information then please let me know. I would be more than happy to help you as well as resolves your issues, Thank you.
