jedit Stuck Install

Tried installing jEdit today only to come to a conclusion that I will be using Kate instead. But after trying to install jEdit through the use of binaries and apt I was un-successful. I then started to remove all traces of the jEdit install that I tried to do. Once I felt I had finished I moved on to the next project only to get struck by jEdit once again. After trying to install a new package via apt I came up with this error:

E: The package jedit needs to be reinstalled, but I can't find an archive for it.

To make a long story short the following fixed the problem:

sudo dpkg --remove --force-depends --force-remove-reinstreq jedit
