Since a few days, I can’t run any docker containers on my machine (Ubuntu 18.04). Whenever I try to run/start a container, I receive an error which says that the entrypoint file can’t be executed:
$ sudo docker run --name test nginx sh: 0: Can't open /docker-entrypoint.sh
$ docker run --name test2 mongo:4.0 WARNING: Error loading config file: /home/myUser/.docker/config.json: stat /home/myUser/.docker/config.json: permission denied /bin/bash: /usr/local/bin/docker-entrypoint.sh: Permission denied
The second error message leads me to the conclusion, that I might have access problem to the whole docker VM. So, this is the current permission setting on the
$ sudo ls -l /home/myUser/.docker total 4 drwx------ 5 root root 4096 Nov 21 2019 machine
From my point of view, it should be fine (at least when the docker run/start command is executed as superuser…). Hence, it must be somewhere else.
What I tried/consulted so far:
- reinstall docker => worked fine until the next reboot…
- this post for permission issues when the entrypoint file is copied into the container from the host (which doesn’t apply to my case where no pre-built image is started…)
- desperately scraping the web for other relevant posts without luck
I’m open to any suggestions and would be glad to deliver further details about my setting if necessary.
Edit: I followed the instructions on docker for the installation and used
I don’t get any results when executing
env | grep DOCKER…
Below the result of docker info:

Edit 2 (or rather a fun fact): I can run the hello-world example from docker. So, the problem is that the permission inside the docker container aren’t enough… why?
Edit 3: Thanks to @Sysadmin, I could remove the warning during the load of
config.json by following the instructions of this post
