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:

  • Docker Compose Containers with specific hostpath on nginx
  • Missing Carriage Return in Docker for Mac Containers
  • Why NPM is not available in Docker Conainter
  • NGINX based sample website in a container
  • Prometheus in Docker container not showing all metrics
  • Docker stops previous running container with the same image. Why?
  • 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 containers seem to 'inherit' the instance profile of the host ec2. How?
  • Within lxc/docker container - what happens if apt-get upgrade includes kernel update?
  • Docker unable to start
  • Supervisor is not starting up
  • How can I setup Docker container with individual IP address on EC2 instance?
  • Docker-machine access to remote docker daemon through ssh tunneling

    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.
