Errors in docker run

Has anyone seen this before? I'm new/bad at Docker and not even sure how to debug.

$ sudo docker logs <container>

fix the permissions of the startup.last file.

Telling you something you already know:  You've got some bad state in your container image or in the persistent storage. 

I think we'd need to see more to be able to help:
* What's the command you're using to run the container?  All the environment variables and mount points is super-important here
* What's the container you're running?  If its your own, maybe the Dockerfile would help
