When I was trying to upgrade PHP version in amazon web server I got this kind of error. I'm trying to up upgrade PHP version 5.6 to 7.0 in amazon web server and I am using to putty to upgrade.

[root@cpanel ec2-user]# sudo yum remove PHP

Loaded plugins: priorities, universal-hooks, update-motd, upgrade-helper
No Match for argument: PHP
No Packages marked for removal 

we should give proper package name.First check which version of php installed.

rpm -qa php*

check the package installed and remove it.

yum remove rh-php56


rpm -Uvh --nodeps php-<version>.rpm
