Docker Error: No status provided on response: unknown

Linode Staff

I'm running Ubuntu 16.04 LTS, but I keep getting the following error message when trying to load a Docker image:

Error: {"message":"no status provided on response: unknown"}

I've already followed the instructions in the Linode Docker guides. I've also tried updating and upgrading, and nothing seems to work.

Based on what I'm seeing from this Docker Github post, this is a compatibility bug between Ubuntu 16.04 LTS and the specific Docker runtime (in this case runc).

The good news is that it looks like a few other folks had some success by installing a different version of runc and then reinstalling docker-ce:

apt-get install runc=1.0.0~rc7+git20190403.029124da-0ubuntu1~16.04.4
apt-get install docker-ce

Hope this helps! If you find a different solution, definitely post it in the comments - this seems to be a newly reported bug.
