And Aditional comment, i just check and replication is not working

MSExchangeFBPublish 8207 error appears in new server

"Error updating public folder with free/busy information on virtual machine NEW, the error number is 0x8004010f"

i do not know if this could be related with the moveallreplicas.ps1 error

If you are aware that all the steps have been taken in migration and that this particular box holds nothing

My recommendation would be to delete the public folder store using ADSIEDIT and then try the uninstall again.
