Docker compose: no such image

A pre-built image referenced in the docker compose config is not found.
This used to work. Did anything change? Is docker hub no longer supported for external images?

docker-compose.yml extract:

version: '2'

    image: arm64v8/postgres:12-alpine

    build: services/web

Log output:

[Info]                  Uploading images
[Error]                 An error occured: (HTTP code 404) no such image - no such image: arm64v8/postgres:12-alpine: No such image: arm64v8/postgres:12-alpine

This image should be pulled:

Hi there!
Docker hub is supported for external images.
Does that issue persist? It could be a transient DockerHub issue, as I was unable to reproduce.

Indeed, just now it worked.

I have observed this issue several times already. I will keep an eye on it.

Thank you for letting us know, and please let us know if this happens for you again.

Best regards,


I’ve observed this same issue multiple times.

Now it also occurred for an image of one of the docker-compose services that was (docker-compose-)built in the same (balena-)build.

Log (I inserted some new-lines to make it more readable):

Hi @ftes, just to confirm does this issue resolve itself later or are you able to reliably reproduce this? If you can reproduce, could you send us an example so we can try here?
