This action cannot be completed because there is already a docker-ce folder inside the Web shared folder

Docker containers wrap a piece of software in a complete filesystem that contains everything needed to run: code, runtime, system tools, system libraries – anything that can be installed on a server. This guarantees that the software will always run the same, regardless of its environment.

This action cannot be completed because there is already a docker-ce folder inside the Web shared folder

Post by beast69 »

Hi,

I have an issue after trying to update Docker yesterday.
Every time I try to update or start Docker I get this error:
This action cannot be completed because there is already a docker-ce folder inside the Web shared folder

I tried to remove the folder like mentioned in another thread with
sudo rmdir /usr/local/webman/docker-ce
But even after confirmation that the folder is gone, when I try to start or update Docker, I have the same error, and the folder reappears
Am I deleting the right one?!?!

Can anyone help me out, I don't want to lose my containers, and their config, special Sonnar which is a bitch to set up properly.
ADM: 4.3.1.R6C1
Docker: 25.0.3.r1

Thank you

Probably there's remnants of the app running, try killing it or reboot. I've encountered this issue few times and removing that folder fixed it. Else you'll have to get someone look into your NAS like opening a ticket with Asustor Support.

Hi,
Thank you for the help but seems a no-go in my case, I deleted the folder, restarted the NAS tried to bring Docker online, and had the same error and the folder is recreated.

But I did fix my problem and here's what I did if it can help someone else

I backup manually the Docker folder with the folder of the containers just in case and also usr/local/AppCentral folder
I uninstalled docker, it will force you to also uninstall all the apps running in docker (to my surprise the Docker folder and subfolders weren't removed)
I reinstall Docker, ADGuard, Portainer, Jacket,Transmission-OpenVPN and Sonarr

They all retain their configurations like nothing ever happened, so so so happy not that have to reconfigure Sonarr.
