Apt remove python not working

I’m following the docker series and one of the tasks was to install and uninstall python on Linux. Both commands work fine

apt update

apt install python

But trying to do
apt remove python.

I get a message saying "Note, selecting ‘python-is-python2’ instead of ‘python’ 0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded’

And python stays installed

same problem for me.
I think that we need help Mosh !

On mac and Linux, python2 is the default python version. When you install python3, you have to refer it as python3 every time. So the command would be:

apt install python3

try
apt remove python-is-python2
