Ubuntu 16.04 - Install Docker
Install Using PPA
Using a PPA will allow you to always use the latest version of Docker without waiting on the Ubuntu package maintainers. Normally I would recommend installing from the Ubuntu Repos, but with docker this method is what I recommend.
#!/bin/bash # Stop script on any error set -e # Remove any existing installations... sudo apt-get purge docker-engine -y sudo apt-get remove docker docker-engine docker.io -y sudo apt update sudo apt install -y \ software-properties-common apt-transport-https ca-certificates curl # Add the key for docker curl -fsSL https://download.docker.com/linux/ubuntu/gpg | sudo apt-key add - sudo add-apt-repository \ "deb [arch=amd64] https://download.docker.com/linux/ubuntu \ $(lsb_release -cs) \ stable" sudo apt update sudo apt install docker-ce -y # Add the current user to docker so that you can # execute docker commands without using sudo sudo usermod -aG docker $USER echo "You will need to reboot before using docker."
This method is what I had been using for quite some time now and still works but the documentation now shows the method above.
Run the command below to install Docker through prog-exec.
prog-exec "7" "8260fb8f1d266abb3275b651e8e24f611751803046c1c9cd1741f98580f907ff"
... or you can execute the following script:
#!/bin/bash sudo apt update -y sudo apt install apt-transport-https ca-certificates -y sudo apt-key adv \ --keyserver hkp://p80.pool.sks-keyservers.net:80 \ --recv-keys 58118E89F3A912897C070ADBF76221572C52609D echo "deb https://apt.dockerproject.org/repo ubuntu-xenial main" \ | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/docker.list sudo apt update sudo apt-get purge lxc-docker sudo apt install -y docker-engine # Add the current user to docker so that you can # execute docker commands without using sudo sudo usermod -aG docker $USER echo "You will need to reboot before using docker."
If you wish to uninstall docker after having installed it using this method, use the commands below:
sudo apt-get purge docker-engine -y sudo apt-get autoremove --purge docker-engine sudo rm -rf /var/lib/docker
Install From Ubuntu Repos
sudo apt update && sudo apt install docker.io -y # Add our current user to the docker group so they can execute docker commands. sudo usermod -a -G docker $USER
