 yum check-update ca-certificates; (($?==100)) && sudo yum 
update ca-certificates || sudo yum -y reinstall ca-certificates

This will install all the components of your ca Certificate required by your domain and server.

In order for the certificate to work, Docker recommends it to be placed in a special directory, /etc/docker/certs.d where you have the domain of the registry and port as well. To do this, enter the following command;

$ sudo mkdir -p /etc/docker/certs.d/registry-1.docker.io:443 

This will create the certificates directory to work with the domain registry.

 

C. Copy the SSL Certificates.

Next you should copy all your ca certificates and key to the created directory for reference by executing the command below;

$ sudo cp CA.crt registry-1.docker.io:443/
$ sudo cp server.crt registry-1.docker.io:443/
$ sudo cp server.key registry-1.docker.io:443/

 

D. Restarting Docker System.

After confirming that your certificates has been successfully copied into the Docker directory, the docker service can be restarted via the command below;

$ sudo systemctl restart docker

To test that the error has been solved, you can try to pull your images by running the command below;

$ sudo docker pull alpine
