Huh, I was crafting my post while you posted this. You may try something that solved a similar issue for me. Basically, it seems that Docker only requests DNS lookups from the first entry in your network connection’s DNS server config (at least on Mac). Try to see if that server is up.

@cdesserich Thanks for the response! I disabled and enabled the network adapter and it worked!
