Server 22 docker V 4.20.0 stuck on "engine starting"

I have had this setup working for years did a restarted on the server no changes just to restart it after running for almost a year and now docker won’t start just sits on “engine starting” will never boot docker.

I tried to shut down and restart same thing.

I read uninstall and reinstall could fix it, however I have a few containers running in Linux on this docker setup that I don’t want deleted and can’t rebuild if I uninstall it. Ideas? If I uninstall docker, will it repick up my settings and containers or am I starting from scratch again?
