Too Many Levels of Symbolic Links


I am new to this forum so, I am sorry if the question is in the wrong place.

I am not familiar with docker, I use it with Gitlab Continuous Integration and lately, I started getting this error on every i386 image:

standard_init_linux.go:211: exec user process caused “too many levels of symbolic links”

I also get this error with official Docker Hub images like i386/ubuntu. I’ve tried downgrading gitlab-ce but it did not work.

I think it could be kernel related but I have no clue on where to start debugging this.

Has anyone had this error or something similar?

Ubuntu 16.04.6 LTS - Kernel 4.4.0-112-generic
Docker 5:19.03.11

Thanks in advance!
