Unknown parent image ID

Hi,

Recently we have been getting this intermittent docker build error unknown parent image ID sha256:<sha> . Running the build again works. Has anyone else come across this issue?

Issue type: Docker build issue

OS Version/build:
NAME=“Amazon Linux AMI”
VERSION=“2018.03”
ID=“amzn”
ID_LIKE=“rhel fedora”
VERSION_ID=“2018.03”
PRETTY_NAME=“Amazon Linux AMI 2018.03”
ANSI_COLOR=“0;33”
CPE_NAME=“cpe:/o:amazon:linux:2018.03:ga”
HOME_URL=“http://aws.amazon.com/amazon-linux-ami/

App version:
Docker version 18.06.1-ce, build e68fc7a215d7133c34aa18e3b72b4a21fd0c6136

Steps to reproduce:

docker build \
-f docker/images/"${IMAGE_DIR}"/"${IMAGE_NAME}" \
--build-arg NODE_ENV="${NODE_ENV}" \
--build-arg SENTRY_RELEASE="${SENTRY_RELEASE}" \
--build-arg CONFIG_KEY="${CONFIG_KEY}" \
-t "${IMAGE_NAME}" .

Dockerfile:

FROM <ECR Image url>
WORKDIR /app
ENV NODE_PATH=/app/custom_modules
ENV TZ=America/Los_Angeles
ENTRYPOINT ["npm", "run"]

ARG NODE_ENV="${NODE_ENV}"
ENV NODE_ENV="${NODE_ENV}"
ARG SENTRY_RELEASE="${SENTRY_RELEASE}"
ENV SENTRY_RELEASE="${SENTRY_RELEASE}"
ENV APP_ENV="${NODE_ENV}"
ARG CONFIG_KEY="${CONFIG_KEY}"
ENV CONFIG_KEY="${CONFIG_KEY}"

I am also getting the same error msg. Were you able to resolve it ? @isurfbecause

No, I have not. I had to create a new Jenkins Slave with the newest docker version to NOT experience that error.

Ohk Thanks @isurfbecause. I was also thinking to upgrade docker on that machine. I faced the issue 2 times then I have not faced it again till now.

Yes that problem is intermittent and hard to reproduce. Upgrading was my only solution.
