Docker error cannot delete docker container, conflict: unable to remove repository reference

0 votes

I’m trying to delete a container but I’m getting an error

ts@Yudi:~/docker$ sudo docker rmi training/webapp
Error response from daemon: conflict: unable to remove repository reference "training/webapp" (must force) - container 0bd2b54678c7 is using its referenced image 54bb4e8718e8
Error: failed to remove images: [training/webapp]

Is the container running in the images?

First, remove the container names

$ sudo docker rm backstabbing_ritchie

The result

$ sudo docker rm backstabbing_ritchie
  backstabbing_ritchie

delete the second part, which is listed on the container to be deleted

$ sudo docker rm drunk_feynman 
  drunk_feynman

Second, remove the container

$ sudo docker rmi training/webapp

The result

$ sudo docker rmi training/webapp
