That shouldn't matter as it failed in "executor_docker.go:166".

First it tries to load helper image from local file system:

ERRO[0000] Docker executor: prebuilt image helpers will be loaded from

Then, in case helper image is not there, it falls back to pull from registry.
So once again, do you have a "/var/lib/gitlab-runner/gitlab-runner-
prebuilt.tar.xz" file?
Did you try to build helper image by "sudo dpkg-reconfigure gitlab-runner"?

If it fails to build a helper image, you would know what's the problem from 
the error. Usually this happens when Docker daemon is not running when 
gitlab-runner is installed...

Criticism may not be agreeable, but it is necessary. It fulfils the same
function as pain in the human body. It calls attention to an unhealthy
state of things.
