Copy and save the list of packages, or get it from the log file using

echo $(cat /var/log/dpkg.log|grep install|grep -v half-installed|grep 16-04-03|cut -d" " -f5|cut -d":" -f1)
                                                    add the date here ^^^^^^^^

and later paste it to

sudo apt-get purge <list of packages>

be careful, but consider to run

sudo apt-get autoremove

...and follow the advice to install the Ubuntu packages, as mentioned
by Andreas and Paul.
