Bad file descriptor issue while launching Docker

Whenever I launch docker, it fails with the “write pipe: bad file descriptor” issue. Is this related to available resources for docker? Any help would be appreciated

Doesnot work

vijaypa@garuda:~$ docker run -it ubuntu bash
write pipe: bad file descriptor

Works if use i386 option. why is that?But this won’t help me when i need to pull docker images from private repos

vijaypa@garuda:~$ docker run -it i386/ubuntu bash
