To remove existing downloaded Docker images from minikube, you can follow these steps:
- Start by accessing the minikube virtual machine:
- Once inside the minikube virtual machine, run the following command to remove all the Docker images:
docker rmi -f $(docker images -a -q)
This command uses the Docker CLI to remove all Docker images. The -f flag forces the removal, and $(docker images -a -q) lists all Docker images and passes them as arguments to the docker rmi command.
- After executing the command, wait for the Docker images to be removed. This process might take some time, depending on the number and size of the images.
Note: Be cautious when executing this command, as it removes all Docker images, including those unrelated to minikube.
- Exit the minikube virtual machine:
After following these steps, all existing downloaded Docker images from minikube should be removed.
