Copying blob 0b2dc63a68b9 skipped: already exists 

That indicates the specific "blob" (i.e., the layer) is already present in the local storage.

`rmi` may remove the entire image but it will not remove a layer that is used by another image.  You can run `$ podman image tree --whatrequires centos:7.9.2009` to figure out which image is using this layer.
