npm uninstall does not work

I have been trying to completely remove Cypress 3.1.4 from my machine.
I have done all the following:
npm uninstall cypress@3.1.4
npm uninstall cypress@3.1.4 --save
npm uninstall cypress@3.1.4 --save-dev
npm -g uninstall cypress@3.1.4 --save

Still, the results of npm view cypress version is still 3.1.4


npm view shows package information regardless of whether it’s installed or not. To check if and why a package is installed, use npm ls (or npm ls -g for global packages). Note that npm ls only looks in the current project (or in the global commands with -g), not across your entire machine.
