As I was following a tutorial on how to use docker-machine create I got stuck with docker-machine create –digitalocean-size “s-2vcpu-4gb” –driver digitalocean –digitalocean-access-token “token here” “server name”

Creating machine…
(keycloakexperiment1) Creating SSH key…
(keycloakexperiment1) Creating Digital Ocean droplet…
(keycloakexperiment1) Waiting for IP address to be assigned to the Droplet…
Waiting for machine to be running, this may take a few minutes…
Detecting operating system of created instance…
Waiting for SSH to be available…
Detecting the provisioner…
Provisioning with ubuntu(systemd)…
Installing Docker…
Copying certs to the local machine directory…
Copying certs to the remote machine…
Setting Docker configuration on the remote daemon…
Error creating machine: Error running provisioning: Unable to verify the Docker daemon is listening: Maximum number of retries (10) exceeded
It changes, nothing googled makes sense because any fix has to me enacted on creation.

Workaround:

docker-machine create \
        --driver digitalocean \
        --digitalocean-access-token $DOTOKEN \
        --engine-install-url "https://releases.rancher.com/install-docker/19.03.9.sh" \
        name;

Turns out, the issue is with the new Docker version. You can try the older version by supplying a URL from which the Docker Engine can be downloaded like this:

docker-machine create [other opts] --engine-install-url==https://releases.rancher.com/install-docker/19.03.9.sh

Yep, the same problem today

docker-machine create --driver digitalocean --digitalocean-image ubuntu-18-04-x64 --digitalocean-size s-1vcpu-1gb --digitalocean-region ams3 --digitalocean-access-token token name

Same here today.

docker-machine create \
    --driver digitalocean \
    --digitalocean-access-token $DOTOKEN \
    --digitalocean-size "s-2vcpu-2gb" \
