Hi there,

It sounds like that you are hitting the same permissions problem as described in the following question:

https://www.digitalocean.com/community/questions/how-to-fix-docker-got-permission-denied-while-trying-to-connect-to-the-docker-daemon-socket

I would recommend following the steps from the accepted answer where you would have to add your shell user to the Docker group in order to be able to run the docker command without having to write sudo each time.

Best,

Bobby
