I get the following message running
docker run -t -i \
/mnt/hdd/dnanexus/docker/vep_mounted_volumes/GRCh38/vep_data:/opt/vep/.vep \
ensemblorg/ensembl-vep \
perl INSTALL.pl -a cfp -s homo_sapiens_merged -y GRCh38 -g all \

Version check reports there are post-release updates available of
ensembl-vep (installed: 103.0, available: 103.1)

You should exit this installer and re-download 'ensembl-vep' if you wish to

Do you wish to exit so you can get updates (y) or continue (n): n

How would I get 103.1 via docker?

Having accepted version 103, after the genome fastq downloads, the INSTALL
process fails with

#- getting list of available cache files
NB: Remember to use --merged when running the VEP with this cache!
