Problem with apt-get update inside a dockerfile (maybe related to network issues)

Hi, I’m trying to use the command:
RUN apt-get update
inside a dockerfile, but this command just hangs forever and there is no response after it.
Also, if I try to exit from this build, the whole computer is stuck and can’t be rebooted (the dockerd process becomes zombie which apparently effects the whole system).
I thought it could be related to network issues because it start happening after my system (ubuntu 16.04)
couldn’t connect to the wifi for some time.
Also, I changed the default data folder used to store images and containers.

These are my docker details:
