Why can't I search for stacks in Datastax Desktop?

I have finished installing and setting up Datastax Desktop and Docker on Windows 10. However, when I start Guided experience, I just get a blank screen, and when I search for stacks in the store, I do not get any result. Am I missing something?

Sorry about that. There are a couple of issues in DataStax Desktop 2.2.0 which you're hitting. For some reason, users are hit with a blank screen and stacks don't show in the Stack Store.

Version 2.2.1 which contains the fix is due to be released in a few hours (morning of US Pacific time).

Apologies again for the inconvenience and thanks for using DataStax Desktop. Cheers!

Thanks Eric. I am trying Desktop from my Ubuntu machine. 20.04 version

Despite being able to run the Docker Hello World container, Desktop tells me "Docker is installed but not running. Start it to continue"

Not my priority to overcome for today, but will come back to it.
