Did you too upgrade your Synology NAS to DSM 7.1 and your Docker stopped working? After countless emails from people asking me why their Docker stopped working after the update and how to fix it, I decided to make an article. If your Docker has stopped working after upgrading to DSM 7.1, it is because the current Docker package that you have installed on your system is not compatible with DSM 7.1-42661 To fix this, you must manually download and install the new Docker package, version 20.10.3-1306. In case you are new to Synology NAS and need a bit of help, below are the steps showing you how to do it.
Download the new Docker package 20.10.3-1306 from the blue link below.
Open Synology Package Center. At the top right, click Manual Install. Upload the docker .spk package that you have previously downloaded at STEP 2 then click Next to start the update process. Follow the instructions in the image below.
Note: Docker is a lightweight virtualization application that gives you the ability to run thousands of containers created by developers from all over the world on DSM. The hugely popular built-in image repository, Docker Hub, allows you to find shared applications from other talented developers.
