This script will uninstall your Nagios installation and then give you the option to reinstall the latest stable version of Nagios. This script is a modified version of the most excellent one created by Lmiltchev
http://support.nagios.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=7102&p=38580#p38580.
I only added the lines for doing a new installation of Nagios. You can also use this to do a uninstall of Nagios and opt out of a new install.
I have only tested it on Centos6
I STRONGLY SUGGEST THAT YOU VIEW THE SCRIPT AND VERIFY WHAT WILL BE WIPED OUT.

Used the script to correct a flawed Nagios XI install and it worked out very well. If after an upgrade Nagios is complaining about missing line in host services and you can't get it cleared up a uninstall/reinstall might be what you need.

Thank you for the work on the script, it saved me a OS re-installation.
