Hello.. I am having this error when using your script:

jq: error (at <stdin>:46): null (null) cannot be matched, as it is not a string

That‘s probabbly because gcloud cannot find any images in your repo. Try listing your images (replacing or defining $IMAGE first of course)

gcloud container images list-tags $IMAGE --limit=unlimited

Does that list your images in the repo?

Hi friend, the script works good! The "jq" error is only you install the "jq package" and will be ok to script use. The "jq" is a tool for processing JSON inputs.

Run in your system: sudo apt install jq -y

Hope this helps.
