This is a known issue when the aufs module is not loaded. This usually means you don't have the right version of the ubuntu linux kernel package installed.

See this discussion thread for details: https://groups.google.com/forum/?fromgroups=#!topic/docker-club/6kkEOIZmPfA

  • look for aufs in /proc/filesystems
  • if not found, try modprobe aufs (after all, we're root)
  • if after that, we still don't have aufs in /proc/filesystems, abort, or at least issue an obnoxious warning
