Failed install on restall

OS Name/Version: Ubuntu 20.04

Problem Description:

I had an install and wanted to uninstall so i did “apt remove ampinstmgr” and deleted the amp under home. (Found on earler forum post)

I ended up wanting to use it anyway and when i try to install again.

I did: sudo su -l
and then: bash <(wget -qO-

and got this error:

[Error] Failed to unpack AMP.
[Error] UnauthorizedAccessException
[Error] [0] (UnauthorizedAccessException) : Access to the path '/home/amp/.ampdata/instances/ADS01' is denied.
[Error]   at IO.FileCreateDirectory (String fullPath) 
  at IO.Directory.CreateDirectory (String path) 
  at InstanceManagerPlugin.LocalInstanceManager.DownloadAndUnpack (InstanceManagerPlugin.LocalAMPInstance Spec, Boolean SkipCache) 
[Error] IOException
[Error] [1] (IOException) : Permission denied
[Info] Instance creation failed. Reason: "The core archive failed to download or unpack"

complete uninstall was this iirc:

sudo apt remove ampinstmgr
sudo deluser amp
sudo rm -rf /home/amp

then do normal install.
