Docker daemon not running on hosted Ubuntu worker


I’ve been successfully deploying this morning, but all of a sudden I’m having problems with the ‘Acquire packages’ step.

DynamicWorker 21-06-16-0703-cw312 is unable to connect to AWS ECR to download a docker image.

Cannot connect to the Docker daemon at unix:///home/tentacle/.docker/run/docker.sock. Is the docker daemon running?

I’ve redeployed three times, but the same error occurs (on the same worker) every time.

Hopefully this is just a bad worker, so can it please be killed as I don’t think I’m able to force my release on to a new worker any other way.


Hi David,

Thanks for getting in touch!

I’ve set that worker to be queued for deletion, you should be good to go on a retry now.


Thanks Paul, the deployment has picked up a new worker and has successfully acquired the docker image.
