$ docker pull ansible/ansible
Using default tag: latest
Error response from daemon: manifest for ansible/ansible:latest not found

I try and get started with ansible but I get the above error message trying to pull the Docker image. Is it broken or am I doing something wrong?

If run you docker pull <image>, you are implicitly asking for a tag named latest. There is no such tag available from the Ansible repository. You can see a list of available tags at https://hub.docker.com/r/ansible/ansible/tags/.

For example, if you wanted the fedora27py3 version of the image, you would run:

docker pull ansible/ansible:fedora27py3

I note that the most recent of thoses images is 7 months old. If you're experimenting iwth Ansible you might want to just install it into a Python virtual environment.
