I was trying to remove a Docker image as follows and could not figure out how to do this.
List of docker images
$ docker images REPOSITORY TAG IMAGE ID CREATED VIRTUAL SIZE <none> <none> 04251cf7a8b9 About a minute ago 356.1 MB pg-image latest 1060b3e656b6 5 minutes ago 323.9 MB redis-image latest 8df469463da3 14 minutes ago 137.7 MB ubuntu 12.04 822a01ae9a15 2 weeks ago 108.1 MB
Docker image I'd like to remove:
$ docker rmi 042 Error response from daemon: Conflict, cannot delete 04251cf7a8b9 because the container 4ac3a09ab4d3 is using it, use -f to force 2014/08/27 15:16:15 Error: failed to remove one or more images
When I attempted to remove it using
-f it was unsuccessful. How do I properly remove this image, and why can I not remove it using
docker rmi -f 042?
