Error while fetching server API version: Not supported URL scheme http+docker

Hello,
I have a problem with update my running container
Everything works fine but now I got this error, maybe someone fixed it already?

What is “an updated container”? All I see a python error saying you have invalid configuration.

docker.errors.DockerException: Error while fetching server API version: Not supported URL scheme http+docker

i got this error while trying to execute docker-compose up -d on my ubuntu server.
Everything was fine, I got my container running, but I need to make an update and this error came in.
I saw that others also face this issue and said that it is caused by requests lib but i put there older version of it and it does not help at all

Stop using the docker-compose command. In some cases that is an alias to docker compose but it was originally Docker Compose v1 which is not maintained anymore and wil not support newer Docker API versions. Run

docker compose up -d

Moving forward is likely a good idea. But for reference there was recently an issue with docker-py and compatibility with the recent update of python requests:
