Only run sud apt get update / upgrade

and then

sudo apt install docker.io



however it threw out this



Job for docker.service failed because the control process exited with error code.
See "systemctl status docker.service" and "journalctl -xe" for details.

Thank you Igor - I googled some instructions which are perhaps out of date?

I had no idea a simple menu based config was even built in!


I'll have a play

This did end up working, is there a 'correct' CLI way to install docker though? 

Our script uses "correct" way:


1. Adds sources
2. Download key
3. Update and install


You can also check official instructions which does the same.

There is a note:

Older versions of Docker were called docker, docker.io , or docker-engine. If these are installed, uninstall them:

Windows 10 Home didn't have Hyper-V, so there's a special Docker edition that uses VirtualBox to run Linux containers on Windows 10 Home, which is not as great as the Professional version
