I had this issue because I was trying to use isolate within a docker container. ,Rerunning the container with the --privileged flag fixed it for me.,The clone function is indeed passing CLONE_NEWNS to run the program in a new namespace. I actually tried removing but I keep getting clone: Operation not permitted.,Connect and share knowledge within a single location that is structured and easy to search.

1 confirmed this fixed the issue for me - had to change directory from windows file system to ubuntu to get the unmount command to work, but after running the commands, i was able to git clone my repo without permissions issue – epikhighs May 26 '20 at 22:04 , 2 The command was successful but this did not change the issue for me. I still see "operation not permitted" as git tries to chmod .git/config.lock. – akohlsmith May 22 '19 at 13:55 ,Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers.

--security-opt seccomp=unconfined doesn't seem to be an option to perform docker builds:,create Dockerfile to build a centos 8 container with latest podman,If you can retest with 3.1.x, it would be interesting. I don't know if I'd consider this a regression given that there should be a reasonable expectation that the clone syscall works?,can be reproduced locally with docker build running in a centos-8 based docker container (docker-in-docker):

FROM centos: 8

   dnf - y install 'dnf-command(copr)'\ &&
   dnf - y copr enable rhcontainerbot / container - selinux\ &&

I just reinstalled Ubuntu WSL on my freshly-formatted laptop. Everything seemed to be working properly but I ran into an annoying problem cloning one of my git repository:,The beginning is the most important part of the work Plato,The metadata option allows Windows to support Linux system permissions: now all chmod/chown-related stuff will work correctly!,I have owned this domain name since 2010 but have never really used it (my old blog, abandoned two years ago, was on a different domain): it’s time for a change!

You cannot do a git clone sanely into the /mnt/c/... space within WSL because of the Linux permission schemas and chmod not working right. This is a limitation of WSL in its current form.,/mnt/c/Users/... is on the Windows NTFS partition itself, and not within the WSL's ext4 formatted system. Therefore you have to treat it as you would an NTFS partition on a USB stick on an actual Ubuntu installation, and accept the limitations of NTFS.,Change the drive letter to whatever one you're having the issue with.,NTFS partitions do not support chmod or similar Linux permissions commands, and unlike in actual Ubuntu instalations which don't error but don't make any permissions changes, WSL doesn't relay this information back to you, it simply errors out as you see here.

I had the same issue. Try this:

sudo umount / mnt / c
sudo mount - t drvfs C: /mnt/c - o metadata

The script I need to run within the docker container invokes git clone which causes this error:,I am using an Arch Linux image in a Docker Action on GitHub Workflow for various tasks. I used to worked fine, however, it stopped working in the last few days.,Powered by Discourse, best viewed with JavaScript enabled

But the same Dockerfile causes “Operation not permitted” on DockerHub:, Github ,Hi all, I see that the issue mentioned above was deleted and isn’t available anymore.,Note these same Dockerfiles build just fine on my local system using docker build. What gives? What is different about building them on Docker Hub?

I’m using the archlinux base image and copying the source of my app to the container using something like:

COPY. / /src

Next I move into that directory:

WORKDIR / src

Then I try to build the software. Normally this would involve running ./configure, but that dies with a weird error saying “Operation not permitted”. It turn out this isn’t just an issue for GNU Make, even ls can’t read the directory! Specifically the directory, not the stuff inside it. I can run RUN ls -l and get a list of files in the source that got copied over, but I can’t run RUN ls -ld to show the directory properties, it dies like this:

Step 17 / 28: RUN ls - ald
   -- - > Running in ec8f9f6c3604
ls: cannot access '.': Operation not permitted

Removing intermediate container ec8f9f6c3604
The command '/bin/sh -c ls -ald'
returned a non - zero code: 2
