What is causing this docker error?
Let us simulate this error message by running an alpine docker container:
[[email protected] ~]# docker run -it alpine /bin/bash Unable to find image 'alpine:latest' locally Trying to pull repository docker.io/library/alpine ... latest: Pulling from docker.io/library/alpine 89d9c30c1d48: Pull complete Digest: sha256:c19173c5ada610a5989151111163d28a67368362762534d8a8121ce95cf2bd5a Status: Downloaded newer image for docker.io/alpine:latest /usr/bin/docker-current: Error response from daemon: oci runtime error: container_linux.go:235: starting container process caused "exec: "/bin/bash": stat /bin/bash: no such file or directory".
Reason for this error
Look at the last line, it says:
"exec: \"/bin/bash\": stat /bin/bash: no such file or directory".
The alpine image does not come with bash. It has the sh shell.
Let us try again calling /bin/sh.
docker run -it alpine /bin/sh
And, it works!
[[email protected] ~]# docker run -it alpine /bin/sh / #
