We are still investigating root cause and remediation options. In the meantime, here is a workaround to be able to pull images from DockerHub:

3. Go to

Add three Codespace secrets:

- DOCKERHUB_CONTAINER_REGISTRY_PASSWORD (equal to the DockerHub PAT you created)
- DOCKERHUB_CONTAINER_REGISTRY_USER (equal to your DockerHub username)

4. Make sure these secrets are set as visible to the target repo.
5. Create/rebuild your Codespace

Steps above are distilled from the official docs:
