Updating the store state of sandbox failed: failed to update store

/usr/bin/docker-current: Error response from daemon: updating the store state of sandbox failed: failed to update store for object type *libnetwork.sbState: json: cannot unmarshal string into Go struct field sbState.ExtDNS of type libnetwork.extDNSEntry.

Any time I try to run containers, I receive this exact error.

Docker version 1.12.6, build c4618fb/1.12.6

I have yum erase docker and reinstalled the package, I have restarted the server, and I have removed all images and containers on the server (to start from scratch).

Where would I begin to troubleshoot this Golang error?

Thank you!

This was resolved by deleting the Docker datastore, using rm -rf /var/lib/docker. After then restarting Docker (which recreated the datastore), the issue was resolved and Docker was once again able to create and start containers.

There are a few solutions here
