docker running in vmware gets x509 error

I have installed docker into vmware player (windows host, ubuntu guest) and can run the simple hello world verification test but when I run any other docker images I get the following error:

Get https://index.docker.io/v1/repositories/[image-path]: 
  tls: failed to parse certificate from server: x509: 
  RSA modulus is not a positive number

My configuration is as follows:

  • Monitoring MySQL running within a docker container?
  • How to Copy file to stopped docker container
  • MS Edge running in guest machine does not store cookies from site hosted in another guest
  • Docker - how to set iface name when creating a new network
  • Deploy group in marathon
  • Jekyll gem install error: unable to convert “\xC3” to UTF-8 in conversion from ASCII-8BIT to UTF-8 to US-ASCII for History.md
  • Windows 7 host
    Ubuntu 14.04 guest
    docker version 1.7.1, build 786b29d
    vmware player, version 7.1.2 build-2780323
    

    Any help is appreciated!

  • docker not unzipping my files
  • Trying to reach my container I got “This site can’t be reached”
  • Running a Docker image in PyCharm causes “Invalid volume specification”
  • How can share Docker Volume UID with my host macOSx
  • Error while running Jenkins in Docker
  • Dockerfile for multiple Docker containers
  • One Solution collect form web for “docker running in vmware gets x509 error”

    For completeness, the following is how this problem was fixed:

    1. Update the guest OS

      sudo apt-get update

    2. Get new version of docker

      curl -sSL https://get.docker.com/ | sh

    3. Restart the guest OS

    Docker will be the best open platform for developers and sysadmins to build, ship, and run distributed applications.
