I have an Ubuntu 19.04 based docker container:

docker run -d -v /home/adr:/root/adr -p 880:80 --name ubuntu-19.04-nginx ubuntu:19.04 tail -F /var/log/alternatives.log

on which I compiled an nginx and installed these packages:

apt-get update
apt-get install apt-file net-tools htop iputils-ping git curl wget build-essential libcanberra-gtk-module jq zlib1g-dev libssl-dev luajit luarocks libgeoip-dev libperl-dev libxslt1-dev libgd-dev libluajit-5.1-dev lua-cjson nano mlocate mc psmisc apt-utils telnet dnsutils iproute2

I then committed the image and created another container:

docker run --net albums-webapp -d -v /home/adr:/root/adrx -p 880:80 -h nginx --name nginx-lua --network-alias=nginx adrhc/ubuntu-19.04-nginx-lua tail -F /var/log/alternatives.log

on which I tried to install:

apt install mysql-client

which yields:

root@nginx:~# apt install mysql-client

but despite this issue the telnet command works on those ip & port:

root@nginx:~# telnet 91.189.88.174 80
Trying 91.189.88.174...
Connected to 91.189.88.174.
Escape character is '^]'.
^]
telnet> Connection closed.

Trying 91.189.88.162...

^]
telnet> Connection closed.

Also ping to various servers (e.g. google, ubuntu) works fine.

Why apt install mysql-client doesn't work and what should I do in order to make it work?

Ok, it seems that the default docker MTU (1500) is not acceptable for me because I use a PPPoE Internet connection on the host on which I run the docker service:

ip addr show eth0
48: eth0@if49: <BROADCAST,MULTICAST,UP,LOWER_UP> mtu 1500 qdisc noqueue state UP group default 
    link/ether 02:42:ac:12:00:02 brd ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff link-netnsid 0
    inet 172.18.0.2/16 brd 172.18.255.255 scope global eth0
       valid_lft forever preferred_lft forever

The solution is to create the network with an appropriate MTU:

docker network create --opt com.docker.network.driver.mtu=1492 albums-webapp
docker network inspect albums-webapp | grep -i mtu

Be aware that while no container is running the command below will still show the 1500 MTU:

ip link show | grep 4d725814c237 | grep mtu

Be also aware that newly created network must be allowed to go outside - so check it also with the firewall.

Also see the related issue: https://github.com/moby/moby/issues/28314

  • Why is the default MTU not acceptable? What is causing the issue? – 030 Nov 3 '19 at 12:14
  • The problem is that I use a PPPoE Internet connection on the host on which I run the docker service which impacts the MTU value for docker networks; I updated my response. – adrhc Nov 3 '19 at 15:15
