Error docker command not found

0 votes

I tried installing Docker on ubuntu but I end up getting the “docker command not found” error.

sudo apt get install docker

After installation when I run docker it gives me the following error:

The program 'docker' is currently not installed. You can install it by typing: sudo apt-get install docker

Is there a simple fix to this problem?

You have to use curl, follow the commands below:

sudo curl -sSL http://getdocker/ | sh

This will execute a code that installs docker.

 Note the last part of the script:

If you would like to use Docker as a non-root user, you should now consider adding your user to the "docker" group with something like:
sudo usermod -aG docker user
Remember that you will have to log out and back in for this to take effect!

Then, update Docker run:

sudo apt-get update && apt-get upgrade

and make sure that you use docker.io instead of docker.

sudo apt-get install docker.io

Add the following in your path environment:

This did not work for me!
Did you restart your docker after adding the path?
No.. I'll try that and let you know
Ohh thanks, it worked!

If you're using Docker as an administrator, then using it as it is(without adding path) should also work!
