Can confirm the same happens for me everytime on Mac OSX 10.11.5

I just uninstall docker then reinstall. But you have to do this every time a new update comes out.

I had a similar error, and was surprised when a reboot cleared the issue; as it turned out, I was having trouble with multiple .dmg files, not just docker.


#4

On my MacBook Air 11" mid 2012, trying to update Docker failed repeatedly, and each time, it froze the computer. I was finally able to update Docker by deleting the old version, downloading the new version from the site with Safari, (When downloaded with Chrome, the .dmg file wouldn’t work.) Then, dragging the icon from the mounted dmg to the applications folder.
