docker missing var lib docker folder

I was trying to do something, but I have accidentally deleted docker folder at var/lib/docker, and now I can not install another docker any more. What to do now? How can I fix this problem and install new docker.

sudo docker run hello-world
Unable to find image 'hello-world:latest' locally
latest: Pulling from library/hello-world
9bb5a5d4561a: Pulling fs layer 
docker: open /var/lib/docker/tmp/GetImageBlob974250330: no such file or directory.
