A friend of mine uses Ubuntu 17.04, which comes with
Docker version 1.12.6, build 78d1802. Trying to run
circleci build results in
Error response from daemon: client is newer than server (client API version: 1.30, server API version: 1.24).
My assumption is that the Picard image contains a Docker client which is too new for this host. However, the documentation on running jobs locally does not mention a version requirement and the
circleci script does not complain about the version of the Docker daemon, either.
It would be nice if the Docker client used by the
circleci script could be downgraded to a more compatible version, or if the documentation would mention version requirements and the
circleci script would check them, before beginning the build.
