sudo docker pull busybox . But no status is being displayed. On issuing another pull request after a ctrl+c it says that image is already being pulled by another client.Also I tried cancelling the ongoing pull and I couldnt here is a bug report regarding the issue.
$sudo docker pull busybox Repository busybox already being pulled by another client. Waiting.

Now, if you run the same
docker pull in two windows you see the same status, i.e. which layers are being downloaded, how far it got, etc.
If you kill just one of those two
docker pull commands, the other one carries on.
If you kill the last client that requested a
pull operation terminates.

This is a proposed feature of Docker. See ongoing discussion at https://github.com/docker/docker/issues/6928:
My proposal is as follows.
docker pull --listto list all the current running docker pulls
docker pull --resumeto resume a given pull
docker pull --rmto remove a given pull
I think you are behind a proxy. If so, you have to stop docker and start it by the following command
sudo HTTP_PROXY=http://<ip of proxy server:port> docker -d &
unset http_proxy and export http_proxy did not work for me while working with docker.
service docker restart
