Docker Engine stopped

I have installed Docker Desktop For windows on Windows 10 Enterprise Version 21H1 (OS Build 19043.v1083).
After few days, on laptop start up following error has been popping up

System.NullReferenceException: Object reference not set to an instance of an object.

When tried to Restart the Docker following error would pop up

System.InvalidOperationException:
Failed to deploy distro docker-desktop to C:\Users\jinesh.prakasan\AppData\Local\Docker\wsl\distro: exit code: -1
stdout: An address incompatible with the requested protocol was used.

Please help to fix this issue.

Hi,

I received the same error. Was it fixed on your side?

I couldn’t find the right fix for the issue. When I re-install the Windows OS and installed the Docker, then I haven’t faced this issue.
