So I had to replace my prism central with a new one, unfortunately it had already taken ownership of the images. With my new prism central at I can not delete any of the old images and I get this error. Operation kImageDelete not allowed, catalog item is owned by cluster 4452164c-24b6-479d-b16b-a8635fbe2741, which I believe is my old prism central UUID. I can't delete them from from the clusters locally because they are hooked to prims central. This is pretty frustrating as I am trying to use PC as my main entry point for managing and deploying vm.

Yes, same problem for me. Is there a way via the CLI to delete those old Images? Tried with acli image.delete but getting the same error.
Same here...

Same problem as the others. Has any one any ideas please ?
For my issue, I ended up contacting support and found that I had images tied to a Cluster that was no longer a part of Prism Central. The only way I could get the images out of Prism Central was for support to provide me with a python script to forcibly remove the bunk images.
