Fatal Error "one of the sub-processes failed: com.docker.driver.amd64-linux -addr -fd:3 -debug

End of last November i got a new iMac 2019 with Intel i9 processor. It came with MacOS 10.14 but I upgraded it to 10.15. I can’t get Docker to work.

Things I tried:

Open a issue at Github https://github.com/docker/for-mac/issues/4088

Fresh install of 10.15 to an external SSD with just Docker for Mac installed=> Same error

Fresh install of 10.14 to an external SSD with just Docker for Mac installed => Same error

Installed Windows via Bootcamp to test if something with VT-x is wrong => Docker for Windows (Hyper-V) works just fine

Ran Memtest86 => No errors

Issue type: Fatal Error “one of the sub-processes failed: com.docker.driver.amd64-linux -addr -fd:3 -debug”

OS Version/build: 10.15.2

App version: 2.2.0.0 (Same error in 2.1.0.5 and 2.1.7.0)

Steps to reproduce: Download and install Docker.app, wait to to launch, via Terminal first run and exec commands in a container.

In order to debug how long my containers survive i ran the following commands.

$ docker run -d alpine top
$ docker exec -i -t <container_name> ash
# inside container:
while sleep 5; do uptime; done
