Docker pull 503 Service Unavailabl

Hi,
I’m having an 503 issue while trying to pull an image from docker hub.

While trying to pull an image from docker hub I get:

docker pull ubuntu:latest
Pulling repository ubuntu
Error: Status 503 trying to pull repository library/ubuntu: “

503 Service Unavailable

\nNo server is available to handle this request.\n\n\n”

But If I use full path It get’s pulled.

docker pull registry.hub.docker.com/library/ubuntu:latest
Pulling repository registry.hub.docker.com/library/ubuntu
d2a0ecffe6fa: Download complete
83e4dde6b9cf: Download complete
b670fb0c7ecd: Download complete
29460ac93442: Download complete
Status: Image is up to date for registry.hub.docker.com/library/ubuntu:latest

Is there a way to debug the pulling in order to see where does the problem appear ?

docker version
Client version: 1.7.0
Client API version: 1.19
Go version (client): go1.4.2
Git commit (client): 0baf609
OS/Arch (client): linux/amd64
Server version: 1.7.0
Server API version: 1.19
Go version (server): go1.4.2
Git commit (server): 0baf609
OS/Arch (server): linux/amd64

HI.

This issue was resolved on site. Old hosts entries
for index.docker.io registry-1.docker.io auth.docker.io
prevented docker pull to do it’s work.

Same problem now, 3 years later…

$ docker pull ubuntu:latest
Error response from daemon: Get https://registry-1.docker.io/v2/library/ubuntu/manifests/latest: received unexpected HTTP status: 503 Service Unavailable

I have the same issue, locally and from AWS.

Was having this issue for the last 20 min, it just got resolved, when docker, keep trying :slight_smile:

I’ve just experienced this issue using Docker for Windows on Windows 10 Pro and logging out and logging back in seemed to work for me.

Right click the Docker icon in the Taskbar, click Username: sign out (where username is your username) and then sign back in.

I am having the same error at 10/15/2019

docker pull fuchicorp/buildtools    
Using default tag: latest
Error response from daemon: received unexpected HTTP status: 503 Service Unavailable

don’t bump year old threads for info you can easily find out.

docker hub registry is down: https://status.docker.com/

@riptusk331 Thanks for the “solution”, but please be respectful! If the respondent (and I FWIW) knew to go to that link, we wouldn’t be here. This is the top google result for the error… and Docker’s status page is… I stopped checking after 5 pages of Google results. Obviously, no one else had provided an actionable answer in ~3 years of bumps or the respondent would have followed the advice instead of bumping.

The Docker Hub has returned to normal operation.

I’ll be closing this topic shortly.
