Trying to delete ssharma2993/2993docker and friendlyhello

Please help. Thanks

Try

and
docker rmi friendlyhello:latest

It worked :sweat_smile:, what does “i” do here?

Remove image I guess, thanks anyway, closing the topic

The i stands for image. So you are rm’ing an image, which is what the listing you posted was showing. rm is for removing containers
