Hi @vupeshmohanty,

Usually means the docker deamon is not actually running. Are you sure you have the process started? I take it you are following this tutorial:

https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-install-discourse-on-ubuntu-18-04

If you are please make sure to check the prerequisites on how to install docker like so :

Discourse is an open-source discussion platform. It can be used as a mailing list, a discussion forum, or a long-form chat room. In this tutorial, we'll install Discourse in an isolated environment using Docker, a containerization application.
