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:

  • How to pass container ip as ENV to other container in docker-compose file
  • Copying all files from one docker volume to another using wild card characters?
  • Update odoo custom module using docker-compose
  • Location of docker images downloaded by Docker (1.9.1) on Mac OS X
  • Clone a secure git repo in Kubernetes pod
  • How do I use a volume created by the docker volume command?
  • 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!

    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.
