Verify that the insecure flag is being set in the "/etc/containers/registries.conf" file and if not update the file with, example excerpt:

prefix = "registry.suse.com"
location = "<ip_or_dns>:5000"
insecure = true


The insecure flag is missing from the "/etc/containers/registries.conf" file.

Additional Information

The insecure flag is specified in the ceph-salt configuration on the admin node, to verify the flag is properly configured run:
ceph-salt config ls containers/registries_conf

For more information on the usage of ceph-salt see the Online Documentation .
