kubernetes installed by kind can't pull container images

I've installed k8s with kind using the instructions from the course. When I started with the first lab with consul, I found that my kubelet running inside consul-control-plane container fails to pull images of the emojivoto applications:

[email protected]:~/lab3.2$ kubectl get po -n emojivoto
NAME                        READY   STATUS             RESTARTS   AGE
emoji-65df4d68f7-9nhqf      0/1     ImagePullBackOff   0          19m
vote-bot-7c59767698-dk5pc   0/1     ImagePullBackOff   0          29m
voting-768f496cd8-8xlrd     0/1     ErrImagePull       0          29m
web-545f869fc4-6z5g8        0/1     ImagePullBackOff   0          29m

in order to exclude any problems with name resolving I've changed nameserver in /etc/resolve.cof to google dns and I can see that name resolution works from within the consul-control-plane container.

[email protected]:~/lab3.2$ docker exec -it consul-control-plane bash
[email protected]:/# cat /etc/resolv.conf
nameserver 8.8.8.8
[email protected]:/# curl -v  google.com
*   Trying 172.217.23.142:80...
* TCP_NODELAY set
* Connected to google.com (172.217.23.142) port 80 (#0)


  GET / HTTP/1.1

But at the same time in journal for kubelet that is running inside that container I still see that it fails to pull the image

[email protected]:/# journalctl -fu kubelet.service

I tried to restart it, but it didn't help. Any ideas how I can troubleshoot this further?

  • One addition. When I changed registry from docker.l5d.io to just docker hub (default one) it worked:

    [email protected]:~/lab3.2$ kubectl get po -n emojivoto
