Circleci/docker orb docker-credential-helper failing

This morning there was a new build of the Releases · docker/docker-credential-helpers · GitHub.

The way the name of the target file is created in the orb no longer works. There seemed to be 2 changes.

The version now has a .linux tacked on (only at the filename portion of the url) and the .tar.gz has been dropped, and it seems that it is no longer a gzipped tar…

still working on this myself, but we are stuck

Looking at the file list I would guess

  • .linux has been included in the name as there is now also support for the darwin version of MACOS.
  • the pre-compiled versions are no longer being gzipped tar for distribution, just the source code.

I’ve posted a link to this thread on the GitHub pages for the docker-orb
