I ran wp plugin deactivate woocommerce --uninstall and it did so successfully. I verified with #ls wp-content/plugins the woocommerce folder no longer exists.

when I run wp plugin install woocommerce --activate the command returns:

Warning: woocommerce: Plugin already installed.
Warning: The 'woocommerce' plugin could not be found.
Success: Plugin already installed.

What is the most efficient command line way to repair this problem?

Try wp plugin delete woocommerce, then reinstalling it.
