In Magento 2, this doesn’t work. The team at Magento has completely changed the way you remove a block from the layout in M2, and we’ll show you how to do it. The remove method is now simply

Practical Example:

As you can see, you place it between the body tags in the page layout in the layout.xml file that you are editing. It’s as simple as that!
