waagent not deprovisioning. Why?

When running the "sudo waagent –force -deprovision" it keeps finishing with the below messages:

Traceback (most recent call last):

@JevonDavis-1810 Apologies for the delayed response.

Can you please share below information to see if we are able to reproduce the issue at our end:

1) What is the OS?
2) OS version?
3) What version of waagent are you trying to deprovision?

You can also report your issue in this dedicated forum here.
