Incomplete docker image removal?

Recommended Posts

Hi - I was trying to upgrade two docker containers (binhex/arch-madsonic and needo/plex). I used the unraid gui to stop the containers and remove the images before pulling in the new images. I am uncertain what happened since removal of the images seems to have stalled for a long time (> 30 mins). The page output was blank, I closed the window. I now see that the images seem corrupted and unable to remove them from command line as well.


Copied below is a screenshot from the gui for dockers and also codes from the terminals.

How do I remove these two containers so I can pull in updated versions?

Thought I would add what I did when a container caused the docker webGUI to not show the control popup (start|stop|remove,etc)


In shell ran:


docker ps -a


Find the docker PID you want to kill or remove. Let's say mine is: 893bdeff01aa


docker kill  893bdeff01aa


docker rm 893bdeff01aa


Done. webGui should work with offending docker removed.
