I would guess this is a Docker Hub problem (or a network/proxy problem between Docker Hub and CircleCI where it is hard to work out who has fix responsibility :grin:)

In the short term you could push this image to another registry and pull from there - the YAML config supports custom/private registries. If you don’t have one to hand, GitLab does a free one, and it has been rock-solid for me.

Yeah I see the tag names changed on circleci’s dockerhub images… so used one of the tags listed here:

Ah right, so it is just a tag name issue? That’s odd - I would expect that to return a 404.

Yeah in that case, although seems to be an intermittent issue as you mentioned. I can pull the node:8 tag image again. So reverting back to node:8 image tag.
