Docker can't connect to docker daemon?

After I update my Docker version to `0.8.0`, I get an error message while entering `sudo docker version`: Client version: 0.8.0 Go version (client): go1.2 Git commit (client): cc3a8c8 2014/02/19 12:54:16 Can't connect to docker daemon. Is 'docker -d' running on this host? And I've followed the instructions and entered command `sudo docker -d`, and I got this: [/var/lib/docker|2462000b] +job initserver() [/var/lib/docker|2462000b.initserver()] Creating server open /var/lib/docker/aufs/layers/cf2414da53f9bcfaa48bc3d58360d7f1cfd3784e4fe51fbef95197709dfc285d: no such file or directory[/var/lib/docker|2462000b] -job initserver() = ERR (1) 2014/02/19 12:55:57 initserver: open /var/lib/docker/aufs/layers/cf2414da53f9bcfaa48bc3d58360d7f1cfd3784e4fe51fbef95197709dfc285d: no such file or directory How do I solve the problem?
