Rpm -qa|grep afs  #should check for afs in the rpm database
Rpm --rebuilddb   #rebuilds the rpm database

You could also use 
Locate or slocate to make sure all the files are gone and not hiding in some
unsuspected place

You may not be able to remove the package with rpm if some of the files have
been removed by hand or by mistake

What script didn't work?  The error is important.

Well, that means the remove didn't complete (probably due to the
aforementioned script problem).

I can't fix a problem if nobody tells me there is one.
