Thank you, try:
[root at worktex ~] # tlmgr remove texworks
tlmgr: not removing texworks, needed by collection-texworks
tlmgr: no packages removed.
tlmgr: action remove returned an error; continuing.
tlmgr: An error has occurred. See above messages. Exiting.
[root at worktex ~] # du -sh /usr/local/texlive/2016/tlpkg/texworks/
19M    /usr/local/texlive/2016/tlpkg/texworks/
[root at worktex ~] # rm -rf /usr/local/texlive/2016/tlpkg/texworks/
With that I gained 19M of space :).
Thankful for everything
