This is a list of known issues with current versions of Docker Engine along with our recommended workaround. You might encounter these errors in Docker Cloud.


Error message: Get i/o timeout

Get https://index.docker.io/v1/repositories/<image>/images: dial tcp: lookup <registry host> on <ip>:53: read udp <ip>:53: i/o timeout

Description

The DNS resolver configured on the host cannot resolve the registry’s hostname.

N/A

Workaround

Retry the operation, or if the error persists, use another DNS resolver. You can do this by updating your /etc/resolv.conf file with these or other DNS servers:

nameserver 8.8.8.8
nameserver 8.8.4.4

Description

Docker Cloud is trying to deploy a container publishing a port which is already being used by a process on the host (like the SSH server listening in port 22).

N/A

Workaround

Either choose another port, or SSH into the node and manually stop the process which is using the port that you are trying to use.
