Docker Desktop stuck on "updating"?

I have a fairly new installation of Docker for Mac. (About a week old.) It is now stuck in this state. Whenever I start the app, it just shows “updating…” for hours, and doesn’t do anything else. The About window does not show any info.

I previously managed to get some containers running, but now can’t do anything with the app.

I wonder if this is a bug and I should report it, or am I doing something wrong myself? Host OS is Catalina 10.15.3.
