close the firewall,retry!
i got the same issue,our webmaster resovle it by this way.

I ran into the exact same error on Ubuntu and it resulted from incompatibility of the new release 18.09.2 with my distribution version. Maybe similar issue?

Thank you for the post.

I use CentOS 7.6, but the kernel version was 3.10. So, I’ve seen the same message after I update the docker-ce version Docker version 18.09.2, build 6247962.

To solve this, I updated the kernel version to 4.20, then docker works well.
I’ve followed the process to update the kernel in CentOS in this page.

Or you can downgrade the docker version to avoid this issue ASAP.

This is what I ended up doing to get past this issue. Don’t know what the issue was.

Update to 4.20 kernel solved problem for me. Centos 7

Same here, I had to downgrade Docker to get it working again on Ubuntu 14.04 LTS … :frowning:
