Can't delete image with children


(Roman) #1

Hi
I am trying
docker rmi c565603bc87f
Error response from daemon: conflict: unable to delete c565603bc87f (cannot be forced) - image has dependent child images
So i can’t delete image even with -f flag. How to delete image then and all of its children ?

Hi there, i had the same problem than you, so i check on the internet and i made me sad that the answer exist on Stack over flows but not on the Docker’s forum.

  1. open your terminal and enter :
    docker inspect --format=’{{.Id}} {{.Parent}}’ $(docker images --filter since=<image_id> -q)
    where you replace <image_id> by your image id (Yeah, man, obviously)
    It will kill every children
  2. then , write :
    docker rmi <image_id>
  3. if it tell you that it is link to a docker so remove it too with the command :
    docker rm < docker_id>
    and then go back to point 2) to end the process .

Normally it should work .

Umm… I am also having issues with deleting unused images and the command above does not seem to help.

docker image rm b602d8daff1b

The format of the above was a bit weird too.

So any idea’s what is going on?
