npm ERR! request to registry.npmjs.org/npm failed, reason: getaddrinfo EADDRNOTAVAIL with docker alpine linux
What I Wanted to Do
I am building a docker alpine linux image with nodejs v9.4.0 compiled from source.
The builds were going green until last Thus/Friday 9/13-9/14 when there was a npm registry service interruption from npm registry. This was reported all over the place and since then all the existing builds where we are using a docker alpine linux build with nodejs , those build started failing. This also includes the base image build which builds the nodejs from source.
What Happened Instead
- npm install -g npm@5
npm ERR! code EADDRNOTAVAIL
npm ERR! errno EADDRNOTAVAIL
npm ERR! request to registry.npmjs.org/npm failed, reason: getaddrinfo EADDRNOTAVAIL registry.npmjs.org:443

Create a test Dockerfile with the following contents
FROM alpine:latest RUN echo -e 'http://dl-cdn.alpinelinux.org/alpine/edge/main\nhttp://dl-cdn.alpinelinux.org/alpine/edge/community\nhttp://dl-cdn.alpinelinux.org/alpine/edge/testing' > /etc/apk/repositories RUN apk --update add --no-cache openssh-client \ curl \ git \ nodejs \ nodejs-npm \ yarn \ python \ python-dev \ py-pip \ build-base RUN yarn --version RUN npm init -y RUN npm install chai RUN yarn init -y RUN yarn add chai
Ensure the latest version docker daemon is installed and running.
from command line run " docker build -t testnode ." in the same folder where Dockerfile exists.
At this point it is not clear where the problem lies. is it npm registry service or docker or alpine linux. The only fact I am aware is that this behavior started after the service interruption on 9/13-14/2018

This is being addressed in alpine linux codebase as explained here https://github.com/yarnpkg/yarn/issues/6384
