I have this problem with Docker containers on one of my servers running OMV 5 on Debian 10.

Temporary failure resolving

About this setup. I have recently installed OMV 5 on two x86 and one ARM server. The problem appears just on one of server, while inside the host os dns seems to work fine, I can install and upgrade packages, in docker containers it simply does not work. I tried to followw several guides, nothing helped so far. Also restored the image and reinstalled docker several time. Also the servers have identical OS images just with a few configuration changes related to disks. I've tried this guide https://development.robinwinslow.uk/2016/06/23/fix-docker-networking-dns/ and this https://www.dedoimedo.com/computers/docker-container-no-network.html On all servers I get this

root@mars:~# docker run busybox nslookup google.com

Non-authoritative answer:
Name:   google.com

On two servers it works (arm and x86):

My router is running OpenWrt 19.07, I also reboot it amd delete the dhcp leases. Which resolved the problem that the installed could not auto configure networks. I also found and started a container with X and VNC. In browsers DNS works fines, but not in apt. See image with working google

I also use henet tunnel brocker to get ipv6.

  • This looks like a network issue related to your docker environment. Could you please provide your docker-compose or the command used to spin up your container?

  • It's in the original description. docker run -t -i ubuntu /bin/bash

The issue is related to somekind of bug of how OMV installs docker and portainer be default received the IP of the gateway. Recreating docker storage w/o portainer solved the issue.
