Docker: no matching manifest for linux/amd64 in the manifest list entries

When pulling Windows docker images on Windows 10/11, you may encounter the following error: 'no matching manifest for linux/amd64 in the manifest list entries' or 'Docker: "no matching manifest for windows/amd64 in the manifest list entries'.

Root cause

The issue occurred because you are running Docker Desktop for Windows using Linux containers. 

Fix the issue

To fix the issue, you just need to switch to Windows containers by following these steps:

  • Docker engine will restart.
  • Once switch/restart is completed, Windows container images will be used when you execute commands like docker run/pull. For example, the following command pulls Windows image:
    docker pull  mcr.microsoft.com/windows:ltsc2019
    ltsc2019: Pulling from windows
    2e3285ff0698: Downloading [>                                                  ]  49.73MB/4.438GB
