Unable to start containers due to OCI runtime create failed:

So I installed docker-compose, and all my containers instantly went down. I simply installed it with apt install docker-compose. I already had docker installed and running.

Now when I try a run command I am only met with this error:

root@docker:~# docker run -d 5f11582196a4
docker: Error response from daemon: OCI runtime create failed: container_linux.go:367: starting container process caused: process_linux.go:495: container init caused: process_linux.go:458: setting cgroup config for procHooks process caused: can’t load program: operation not permitted: unknown.

I do have a snapshot of the VM, but that is from a month ago, and A LOT of work has been done since then. (A new backup was due tomorrow…)

Please help anyone, as this is my main docker VM and everything on my home network is hosted here.

Please share the outputs of following commands:

  • docker version
  • docker info
  • dpkg -l | grep docker
  • snap list docker
