Docker Not Running Error in Terminal when Docker Desktop is Clearly Running

When attempting to run a Docker command in the terminal I receive the message “docker not running” although Docker Desktop is clearly running.

This issue started after I updated my MacOS (M1 Slilcon) to Ventura 13.3.1. For context I have ran my project with Docker Desktop for the past 4+ months and have had no issues until this OS update.

My Docker Desktop version is 4.18.0.

Yesterday I uninstalled Docker Desktop and Re-installed Docker Desktop. After re-installing it yesterday it worked fine. Today it’s giving me issues again.

I’m curious to know if anyone else is also experiencing this issue and if they have found any solutions to it.

I forgot to update my Mac to 13.3.1 until now. After the update, the docker command still works. Have checked if your docker context is correct?

Do you have other desktops installed like Rancher Desktop?
