Docker Error response from daemon: manifest not found when running container following Get Started Tutorial

I am attempting to follow the docker get-started tutorial and have encountered a problem on part 2 under the section

Pull and run the image from the remote repository

The command it says to run is

docker run -p 4000:80 username/repository:tag

I run that:

sudo docker run -p 4000:80 <username>/getting -started:part2

and I get

Unable to find image '<username>/getting-started:part2' locally
docker: Error response from daemon: manifest for <username>/getting-started:part2 not found.
See 'docker run --help'.

‘docker run --help’ is just a list of command options for run so is no help.

Since I followed the previous instructions in the tutorial I have the repository on docker hub, and can see it there, so the push was successful.

I don’t understand what I am doing wrong or why I can’t pull it down.

Can anyone see my mistakes or figure out why it can’t find the image and the error shows up?

I am using an Amazon Linux 2 machine one AWS EC2, with mobaxterm.

I had the same problem at first, then I checked the spelling. I wrote get-startet instead of get-started. Maybe you have (or had) the same problem. Maybe this post helps some newbies :sweat_smile:

@murphyjohn have you resolved that?coz i have the same problem.

I solved it using the tag that I want to pull.
I hope that this could be helpful


You are aware that the previous steps to buid, tag an push the image (after a docker login of course) are cruical for the endavor to work. Either one of those steps didn’t finish with success OR reponame:tag is not used consistently between the steps.

The tutorial steps in are correct.

I have faced this problem although I figure out the problem.
I solved this problem by this command: docker run imagename:tag

Here are few suggestions:

  1. Try restarting your Docker service.
  2. Check your network connections. For example by the following shell commands:
</dev/tcp/ && echo Works || echo Problem
curl && echo Works || echo Problem
  1. Check your proxy settings (e.g. in /etc/default/docker ).

If above won’t help, this could be a temporary issue with the Docker services (as per Service Unavailable ).

I had this problem for past days, it just worked after that.

You can consider raising the issue at docker/hub-feedback repo, check at, Docker Community Forums, or contact Docker Support directly.

Faced the same issue.
here is what I did.
Right next to the image you wanted to download, there is a command. something like this.
docker pull oraclelinux

I got the same error.
Error response from daemon: manifest for oraclelinux:latest not found: manifest unknown: manifest unknown

What I did:
Click on View available tags below the command.

choose a image from the list which shows up.
docker pull oraclelinux:8.3

this worked, adding rhe specific tag of image and issue is resolved
