Couldn't connect to Docker daemon at http+docker://localhost

Hey everyone!

I ran into the following message when trying to run the “discovery start” command.

Can someone maybe help/explain what one needs to do in this situation?

Update: After executing the following command “sudo chown user/var/run/docker.sock” the Discovery Docker network is launching. Apparently a permission issue with docker, I guess.

FYI, rather than changing ownership of the docker socket to your particular user, you should solve it the other way around giving permission to your user to the group of users that can administer docker, as explained in the recommended setup for docker:
