Docker: Can't connect to docker daemon

0 votes

I update my Docker version to 0.8.0.

Now, I get this error message while entering sudo docker version:

Client version: 0.8.0
Go version (client): go1.2
Git commit (client): cc3a8c8
2014/02/19 12:54:16 Can't connect to docker daemon. Is 'docker -d' running on this host?

And I've followed the instructions and entered command sudo docker -d, and this is what I got:

[/var/lib/docker|2462000b] +job initserver()
[/var/lib/docker|2462000b.initserver()] Creating server

Can anybody do anything about this?
