Problem running gdc-client tool

I've been trying to run the gdc-client tool to download a bam file into my workspace.
The docker image I'm using is docker.io/broadinstitute/gdc_downloader:1.0
The tool itself was downloaded from the GDC official website and is compatible with Linux.
When I try to run the tool in FireCloud I get the following error:

Process SyncManager-1:
Traceback (most recent call last):

If I pull the docker image and run it locally, the tool runs successfully and downloads the file. Also, this specific method has been run on FireCloud before without any issues.

It seems to me that there's some kind of problem opening a socket to the GDC server from within a FireCloud VM.

Has anyone seen anything similar?

Thanks in advance!
