Docker "Build Your Own Image" Example Produces Errors


(Poebacon) #1

The example on docker.com produces the following for me. I’m running Docker on Ubuntu 14.04 LTS.

lynd@zdog:~/mydockerbuild$ docker build -t docker-whale .

(Ranjandas) #2

Hi,

This error is just because the docker daemon cannot reach ubuntu apt repositories. Make sure your machine running docker daemon can reach internet.

Regards


(Poebacon) #3

Thanks. The machine can reach the Internet. I use apt repositories from it all the time. Maybe the demo needs to be run as sudo? No, that doesn’t fix the errors.


(Poebacon) #4

It appears that docker wasn’t able to access a DNS. The Ubuntu 14.04 LTS machine that I have docker installed on is using a dynamic IP number provided by a DHCP server on a LAN. I added the IP of the LAN’s router to the file /etc/default/docker. I suppose I could also provided the IP numbers of some DNS’s. In any case, I was then able to build the example, but I did receive:

[snip]
Get:4 http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ trusty/universe fortunes all 1:1.99.1-7 [1089 kB]
debconf: unable to initialize frontend: Dialog
debconf: (TERM is not set, so the dialog frontend is not usable.)
debconf: falling back to frontend: Readline
debconf: unable to initialize frontend: Readline
debconf: (This frontend requires a controlling tty.)
debconf: falling back to frontend: Teletype
dpkg-preconfigure: unable to re-open stdin: 

The example does seen to work, however. Thx!

I have the same issue with Ubuntu 15.10 running in a VM.

All I did to resolve was, vi /etc/resolve.conf
Add the DNS server entry into it.

'nameserver x.x.x.x`
