what did you do to resolve this?

I am running into the same thing. Any ideas?

I went into settings and did a ‘reset to factory default’. Then just
waited. I think some activity happens in the background that you don’t
see. Also don’t hesitate to restart your computer.

Indeed, doing a ‘Reset to factory default’ resolved the issue and it works again.
Would be nice to know what this actually does, to figure out what the exact issue is here.


I was able to see more of what is happening behind the scenes with the following command,

syslog -w -k Sender Docker
