When I tried to delete the old image, I got

Error response from daemon: conflict: unable to delete 3925ef3919cc (cannot be forced) - image has dependent child images

Use the ./launcher cleanup command:

The following command will
- Delete all docker images for old containers
- Delete all stopped and orphan containers
