I'm attempting to get to the bottom of why one of my bash scripts keeps failing. I think the problem is that docker is having issues.

I think that because if I just do "docker load < /var/tmp/b_jira2.tar.xz" 100 times in a row, 65% of them fail, and each error reports a different unexpected "got sha256" hash.

I've seen a lot of questions about such errors that turned out to be because of a bad file transfer, but I do not think that is the case here, because I am using the same input file repeatedly, and getting different results.

Is there some way I can make docker more stable?

I am using:

$ docker --version
Docker version 18.09.6, build 481bc77

$ cat /etc/lsb-release 
DISTRIB_DESCRIPTION="Linux Mint 19.1 Tessa"


  • And this morning I just got 100% success on 25 test loads. Weird. – Dan Stromberg Jun 13 at 16:05
