Hello Docker Community,
I am experiencing an issue with Docker on my Ubuntu 22.04.1 system and would appreciate any assistance you can provide. Here is a brief overview of the problem:
After successfully installing Docker (version 25.0.0, build e758fe5) on my Ubuntu 22.04.1 LTS (Codename: jammy), I am encountering an error when trying to run Docker commands. The specific error message I receive is: “Failed to initialize: protocol not available”.
This issue occurs when running basic Docker commands like
docker run hello-world and
docker info, resulting in the same error message.
Here are the steps I followed and the responses I received:
- Installed Docker using
sudo apt install docker-ce.
- Started Docker service with
sudo service docker start, and confirmed it’s running with
sudo service docker status.
- Attempted to run
sudo docker run hello-world, resulting in the error: “Failed to initialize: protocol not available”.
