dockerhub registery: x509: certificate signed by unknown authority

I’ve spend hours looking to solve this issue, however I’m unable to find any topics related to this issue, since all I find is custom registeries.
When running any of the docker commands that connect to docker hub, either through or, all requests end up in “x509: certificate signed by unknown authority”. However using curl to run query the same endpoints seem to function just fine.

I’ve reinstalled docker completely, purging all configuration files, however it does not seem to make a difference.
