Docker-ce 17.12 : cannot kill container connection error


After updating docker to docker-ce 17.12 I get a lot of following errors, when executing:

docker stop myContainer


Error response from daemon: cannot stop container: myContainer: Cannot kill container d7c325169112888146675bd225aab2f361fac3aa9c6317972bc0cfdefac13caf: connection error: desc = “transport: dial unix:///var/run/docker/containerd/docker-containerd.sock: timeout”: unknown

And a restart of the docker daemon is necessary to continue.

I run docker on a Raspberry Pi 3 with raspbian:jessie installed.
