Error response from daemon: Get https://registry.gitlab.com/v2/: unauthorized: authentication required

Trying to log into using docker login registry.gitlab.com but I keep getting Error response from daemon: Get https://registry.gitlab.com/v2/: unauthorized: authentication required using the same username and password I use to log into https://gitlab.com. Are there any upgrades going on that could be preventing me from logging in?

I am affected by this as well, with Docker 1.12.1.

I am affected by this, too. Here are some more data points:

Gitlab CE 8.12.2 registry with Docker. The client throws:

$ docker login hub.mark.local:4567
Username (mark): mark
Password:
Error response from daemon: Get https://hub.mark.local:4567/v2/: unauthorized: authentication required

… and docker logs -f gitlab shows:

8.12.3 has been release just a minute or two ago. It gives this message:

unauthorized: HTTP Basic: Access denied
You have 2FA enabled, please use a personal access token for Git over HTTP.
You can generate one at https://hub.mark.local/profile/personal_access_tokens

I’ve been able to log in using such a token, which solved the issue for me.

Super late response but for anyone having trouble with this: Don’t actually docker login to just registry.gitlab.com, you need your full container registry url. Also using sudo might help if your on linux and get permission denied.

Hi,

I’m still getting this error:
Error response from daemon: Get https://registry-1.docker.io/v2/: unauthorized: incorrect username or password

128

I’m pretty new to GitLab, so not sure how to debug this.
