I've been looking for a way to remove a group of packages I installed earlier. Then I came across this solution that I am going to share with you guys. To remove a group using yum, run the following command, yum groups remove "NameOfTheGroup" Let's say, I installed the group "Development Tools", then I found that I don't really need it. So to remove it, I used the following command, yum groups remove "Development Tools" Tested on: CentOS 7
