Docker fails to create endpoint posted on 24 December 2016

I ran into this issue recently while trying to get tensorflow running:

[email protected]:~$ docker run  -p 8888:8888
docker: Error response from daemon: failed to create endpoint high_raman on network bridge: failed to add the host (veth3c0e4fe) <=> sandbox (veth21faddb) pair interfaces: operation not supported.

Nothing looked suspicious in ip addr

Looking around, it seems that Archlinux needs to reboot for Docker to properly work. I didn’t look any further, but at least this did the trick for me.
