I had the same issue with some kind of bad install on Ubuntu 20.04. I was able to get a copy of the uninstall script locally using the displaylink installer.

First, make a new folder for the installer output in the same directory as your :
mkdir displaylink
Then, run the "run" command, but use an argument to output the contents it normally installs to a separate folder, i.e. the one you just made.

sudo ./ --target displaylink
Afterward, in your displaylink folder you should have a number of new scripts, including your In the new directory (displaylink in this example), run the shell script with the uninstall argument:

sudo ./ uninstall
That successfully did an uninstall for me, and I was able to run the "run" installer again and get it to work. Afterward, switching to Xorg allowed me to actually recognize and use my screen.
