I have pulled the latest AppScale version by running this command:
docker pull appscale/appscale:latest,

Then I started the container by running: 
docker run -i -t appscale/appscale:latest /bin/bash

I entered the container and run the following command:
bash appscale/scripts/ --no-demo-app

Then there was mistake that I can not resolve:
Port did not open in time. Aborting...

I suspect the issue is that the AdminServer is unable to use cgroups to start the datastore server. If you check /var/log/appscale/admin_server.log, you may see an error like "OSError: [Errno 30] Read-only file system: '/sys/fs/cgroup/memory/appscale-datastore'". This is a somewhat recent regression in our docker image.

You can try running the docker container with the "--privileged" flag to fix the problem, but I would recommend using a VM (I usually use Vagrant) instead of a container for running AppScale. We don't test our docker container nearly as much as our other images.
