When I try pulling the Stellar image from the UNIX server with the command: '$docker pull stellar/quickstart' I get the error message : Cannot connect to the Docker daemon at unix:///var/run/docker.sock. Is the docker daemon running?. What should I do to get the docker daemon running - or, can I 'pull' it from somewhere else? ...many thanks!


type this command to check if your docker is running

sudo systemctl status docker

output should look like this if it is running

● docker.service - Docker Application Container Engine

Loaded: loaded (/lib/systemd/system/docker.service; enabled; vendor p
