Randomly stalling docker pull

24 of February, 2016


Quick solution - restart docker or restart docker machine (if you use mac).

On mac - ssh into docker machine and restart docker there.

docker-machine ssh default
/etc/init.d/docker restart

or just restart docker machine if above didn’t help. Just remember that it’s more of a shotgun approach - your running containers will stop.

docker-machine restart default

I think the reason why I have this issue quite often is that I’ve got very slow internet connection at home and have to leave downloads running for longer.

Sometimes whole network mapping fails for containers running in docker image.

Sometimes just stalling docker pull.

There seems to be still an open issue 12823 in github.
