Docker save: Error response from daemon: unexpected EOF


(Ctammes) #1

When I try to save a docker image, I get an error: Error response from daemon: unexpected EOF.
This does not happen wtih busybox and a couple of other very small images, but I cannot save ubuntu, which is hardly bigger.
Command: docker save -o test.tar busybox

I got 24Gb available on disk.

I removed /var/lib/docker/repositories-aufs (one of the suggestions), but that didn’t help (it was not recreated, so not in use anymore).

Any suggestions?

What is the size of the image? Does it exceed the available disk space?
