roalva is on a distinguished road
I am new to OpenFOAM and in general to Ubuntu operating system. I followed the instructions to install OpenFOAM found at
I managed to install Docker, and even to run ./installOpenFOAM+ successfully. However, the last step of the installation is giving me a problem. When I do ./startOpenFOAM+ it shows me the following message:

non-network local connections being added to access control list
rpc error: code = 2 desc = oci runtime error: exec failed: container_linux.go:1153: sending signal 0 to pid 8141 caused "permission denied"

any suggestion would be highly appreciated. Thanks!

Quick answer: On the installation page - there is a step that indicates:
The Docker installation process should create a group docker.
What were the exact commands that you used when following that step?
