How to solve docker containers can not be down or stopped or removed - permission denied error

A lot of advice is running aa-remove-unkown or teardown the apparmore. Which I HAVE NO KNOWLEDGE ABOUT apparmore and scared to do anything in HOST level.

So I found much simpler solution (but more hard work).

How to kill docker container from the inside

Find you container-name by running docker ps


docker exec -it <container-name> sh

Now you’re on a shell, run

kill 1

Verified the docker stop running by run docker ps again
