Uninstall this App using PowerShell will not work!
I have try to uninstall a SharePoint 2013 App. with this PowerShell Command:
Get Instance of Not-properly installed App Instance as following :
$instance = Get-SPAppInstance -Web http://mysharepointSite/ -AppInstanceId
Uninstall-SPAppInstance Identity $instance
It did work perfectly for SharePoint hosted apps.
For auto-hosted Apps it didnt work as it is waiting on some Job to be finished before It can uninstall this App. Another job exists on
this instance. Please retry after that job is done. this error message appears as below:
How can I remove the App in a On-Prem Installation?
Best Regards, Ralf

I have found no other way then delete the entry in the content-database. you can find the app entry inside of the AppInstallations table. i remove this apps here. after the apps will not shown in the content list oder app in $instances = Get-SPAppInstance
I think this is only a bad workaround.

Could someone help? We are encountering the same issue where we were able to remove one of the installed app.
The message indicates that Another job exists on this instance.
Please retry after that job is done.

Really finding it hard to believe that after a year no one has replied to this issue from within Microsoft's SharePoint division to provide an effective solution or work around. Is anyone actually monitoring this thread; because it is damn important?
Put down the trick question lists for the certifications you perpetrate upon us and deal with the real life issues at hand that you have caused!

You can resolve the above issue by simple SQL command
Go to your app database and try to run the below command
delete from [WSS_Content].dbo.AppPackages where Title = 'My APP Name'
