Node.js Question

Docker - no such file or directory

I'm receiving an error from docker when I run my docker file. It's saying the /var/lib/docker/aufs/layers/xxxx: no such file or directory when I run Docker build .

I have tried numerous ways to remove containers and images so I'm pretty much stock on this one.


The Docker file is:

FROM node:6

RUN git clone https://github.com/preboot/angular2-webpack.git

WORKDIR angular2-webpack

RUN sed -i.bak 's/--port 8080/--host --port 8080/'
package.json RUN npm i

CMD [ "npm", "run", "start" ]

The complete console output is:

Sending build context to Docker daemon

The issue was resolved thanks to @BMitchs' recommendation:

  1. rm -rf /var/lib/docker/*

  2. Uninstall Docker completely

  3. re install docker


With that sort of corruption, I'd give a full docker wipe a try, rm -rf /var/lib/docker/*. Before doing that, backup any data (volumes), then shutdown docker, and you'll need to pull or rebuild all your images again. If there are still problems with aufs, try changing the filesystem driver, e.g. changing to dockerd -s overlay2 in your service startup.

It doesn't hurt to check for common issues, like running out of disk space or old version of the application, first.
