How to remove an instance

See also: delete, recover, purge.

To remove an instance in Multipass, run:

$ multipass delete keen-yak

You will see in list that it’s actually just marked for deletion (or to put it in other words, put in the Recycle bin):

$ multipass list
Name                    State             IPv4             Release
keen-yak                DELETED           --               Not Available

You can then recover it, or purge to remove all deleted instances completely:

$ multipass recover keen-yak
$ multipass list
Name                    State             IPv4             Release
keen-yak                STOPPED           --               Ubuntu 18.04 LTS
$ multipass delete keen-yak
$ multipass purge
$ multipass ls
No instances found.
