Bitbucket runner throwing error: "An error occurred whilst pulling image"


Hi All, 

Its my first time using Bitbucket runners/docker. So I am completely new to this. 

I followed the instruction on the atlassian website and have installed Bitbucket runner on my Ubuntu VM.

When I run the pipeline it fails with the below error:

[2021-11-19 11:58:12,612] An error occurred whilst pulling image.
com.github.dockerjava.api.exception.InternalServerErrorException: Status 500: {"message":"Get \"\": remote error: tls: protocol version not supported"}

I installed docker using the convenience script.
I did not setup a docker repository as I am only interested in using whats available on docker hub if that makes sense...

Please do advice me as I am new to this.

I have added a screenshot of the pipeline yaml file as well.PipelineYAML.PNGRunner.PNG

Any help is appreciated. 


Some extra logs (when running pipeline second time):

Hi @farkhnawaz 


Looking at the error, I believe your server using an outdated TLS and cipher hence you getting the error "remote error: tls: protocol version not supported".
You can use the following commands to check your OpenSSL version

openssl version

If you are using v1.1 then you need to upgrade your server OpenSSL version to at least v1.2 or v1.3. Upgrade will depend on your Linux distros and a quick search should give you information on how to upgrade.

Let me know how it goes
