"unauthorized: authentication required" when pushing a large image


(Alumae) #1

I am trying to push a 9.35 GB image to Docker Hub. I get a “unauthorized: authentication required” error after all the layers have been uploaded. I have logged in using docker login, and pushing a smaller test image succeeds.

Is there a size limit for public images hosted at Docker Hub?

I also post the relevant lines from /var/log/daemon.log:
