Audacity 2.2.0 installation issue

I had Audacity 2.1.3 on my system. I installed the latest version 2.2.0 over it. Then, there were two entries of Audacity in Apps & features. I uninstalled Audacity 2.1.3 from Apps & features, it actually removed version 2.2.0. Then, I tried uninstalling the Audacity 2.2.0 and it gave me an error shown in the attached snapshot. Then, I installed version 2.1.3 and I was able to uninstall it successfully. I think Audacity should remove the previous version when overwriting with a newer version.
