How to handle 'Project cannot be transferred, because tags are present in its container registry'

Cannot transfer a project

I wish to transfer a project hosted on gitlab.com from one of my groups to another group.
When I attempt the transfer I get this message: Project cannot be transferred, because tags are present in its container registry

  • I do not see a container registry anywhere
  • The repository tags are empty

What am I missing?

Did you try to navigate to sidebar menu Packages & Registries ->Container Registry on a project where Container registry is enabled and then click on the button that should say Remove Tag?
