so I did the following to remove the stuck SharePoint solution (Retracting) from SharePoint central administration

  • In Services, Check SharePoint administration service is running or not. If it is running, please restart it(stop and start)
  • Try to uninstall it again. if it is still stuck execute the below command to know more about pending jobs

     stsadm -o enumdeployments
  • Now, try to remove the solution with force command

     Remove-SPSolution -Identity your.wsp -force

  • Go back to the solution management it should be removed now, 

  • try now to install it again that should be deployed successfully.
If you don’t ask, the answer is always NO!
