Error response from daemon: conflict: unable to delete e16184e8dd39 (cannot be forced) - image has dependent child images
[vagrant@localhost docker-flask-app]$

I can not delete an image with the -f flag.

How to Fixed it

You should try to remove unnecessary images before removing the image:

[vagrant@localhost docker-flask-app]$ docker rmi $(docker images -q) -f

The output terminal as below

Note: This command above will remove images all.

After you remove image

docker rmi -f e16184e8dd39
