`lando init` fails with: "error: Lando thinks you might need some help with your droid" #1158
Lando version: lando 3.0.0-beta.47 (latest release at time of writing)
STEPS TO REPRODUCE:
This error message provides no useful information to help troubleshoot the issue.
I would suggest improvement of the error message to help the user identify and resolve whatever went wrong. Googling the phrase above only returns search results about how Lando Calrissian is pansexual in the latest Star Wars films.
@pirog I have docker installed and have been using it for a couple years. I want to install lando for the pantheon-sync support. When I ran the Lando installer, the Docker part seemed to be optional so I un-checked it. Do I need to set some environment variables to get lando to see my docker install?
Yeah I mean the funny message is there because it should be close to impossible to actually get that error. You are literally the first in like 20,000 people to actually get it so congratulations…

Do I need to set some environment variables to get lando to see my docker install? The error message should communicate that it can't find docker, and ideally offer some guidance as to how to resolve the issue. The funny message is fine to include (and would be much more appreciated) as long as the helpful info is also present. — You are receiving this because you were mentioned.

I'm getting the same error. On Docker version 18.06.1-ce-mac73 (26764). macOS High Sierra 10.13.6 (17G65). I've never seen this before. Very strange.
In fact, I can't start any of my previously functional Lando projects. I get the same worthless error message and no useful troubleshooting output from the lando command. Docker is running just fine and I am able to spin up a Docker project.
Don't get me wrong, the message is funny. I would prefer that it says more to help me understand what's broken.
