I'm running into the same issue trying to build an IoT Edge Module (these modules are windows container images) in VSTS.
We're using the same type of agent, Hosted VS2017.

I found maybe an explication about this error: VSTS agents seem not support nanoserver-1709 actually. Maybe this will change with the next version 1803.

See details here: microsoft/azure-pipelines-agent#1393

When I setup and host a custom agent on a machine on Azure, it's working. So it's not a bug with this task. I close this issue. Thanks!
