Unable to install Jenkins suggested plugins when running through Docker

Hi, I have been having this issue for the past three days.

  • Task: Attempting set up and run Jenkins through a Docker container.
  • Operating System: Windows 10 Enterprise (work pc with full admin permissions)
  • Docker Desktop installed
  • Java JDK 17 installed
  • Issue: After settings up jenkins using docker, the “Suggested Plugins” do not install.

Steps to reproduce.

  1. Open cmd as Administrator

  2. On the command prompt typed the following:
    docker run -p 8080:8080 -p 50000:50000 -v jenkins_home:/var/jenkins_home jenkins/jenkins:lts

  3. After run is done, I copied the generated password

  4. In a web browser I opened, localhost:8080

  5. On the “Unlock Jenkins” screen, I entered the password copied from step 3.

  6. On the Customize Jenkins page, I clicked “Install suggested plugins”

  7. After clicking “Install suggested plugins”, all but one of the plugins failed to install: (sometimes they ALL fail)

  8. Clicking Retry does not resolve the issue as the plugin installation continues to fail.

  • The error log keeps saying it can’t access the URL to download the plugin, but I’m able to access the URL when copying them and pasting them into my webbrowser.

  • I also tried installing manually, but that didn’t work either because its just too many dependencies to manually install

  • This is on a work pc, where I have full admin rights

  • When running Jenkins directly on my pc without using Docker the plugins download and install just fine.

The log is thousands of lines long so I will just post a portion of it…

Can anyone help me in telling me what is going wrong here and how to fix it?
