You deleted the files manually but the entries in RPM database are not deleted. The RPM database need to be cleaned. There should be an article on how to uninstall Intel compiler manually. I will post the pointer for the article here after locating the artcle.

Please try to s following instruction using root user account:

If your system is RPM based (RHEL x, Fedora x):

1) Please get a list of installed rpm files: # > rpm -qa | grep intel | grep package number (example, rpm -qa | grep intel | grep 273). Package number can be obtained from package archive.

2) Then for each of the entries returned in step 1 call a command: # > rpm -e --nodeps --allmatches line from step 1

If your system is not RPM based (Debian, Ubuntu) or you are not a root:

1) Please open the file and remove all lines associated with package number:

a. root user case /opt/intel/intel_sdp_products.db

b. non-root user case ${HOME}/intel/intel_sdp_products.db

Final step is to remove broken symbolic links from the top of install location.
