Goal: 

This document provides steps on how to delete the container images from a private container registry and then safely remove the empty repository. 

 

Solution: 

In this example, "pvtregistry" is a private registry that contains the images to be deleted and the path to root of the registry is /var/lib/registry/ in the container.
