What you've done is make your program expect arguments, not options.
Try running your script --help and you'll see how it parses. Whatever
keyword is given goes into args.install, and if you provide a second
arg, it'll become args.uninstall.
To do what you're looking for there, I wouldn't bother with argparse
at all - I'd just look at sys.argv for the word you're looking for.
Yes, it'd be a bit strict and simplistic, but by the look of things,
you don't need sophistication.
