Communication with networking components failed: cannot connect

I can’t run docker on my MacBook Pro, I keep getting the error message:

Communication with networking components failed: cannot connect

Any one have an idea what’s going on here?

System: Catalina 10.15.17, Intel processer

Hi

Check this out: Communication with networking components failed. · Issue #1300 · docker/for-mac · GitHub

I did, I don’t have either of those files on my machine.

Any luck with this? It seems the method to install Docker 3.5 is different and requires to run the command /Applications/Docker.app/Contents/MacOS/Docker --install-privileged-components to install the privileged tools. Issue I’m getting is similar to this one. When running that command I get Docker.BootstrapStopped or when going through the GUI I get communication with networking components failed. The file /Applications/Docker.app/Contents/Resources/com.docker.vmnetd.plist is no longer packaged with the newer version.
