Purge module is a 3rd party module to allow selective removal of 
cache items via HTTP requests.  It is not required for normal 
operation of nginx cache.

(On the other hand, it may iterfere with normal cache operations 
and may cause problems you observe, much like any other 3rd party 
module.  That's why we usually ask people to reproduce the issue 
without 3rd party modules/patches as one of first investigation
