Apt repo label changed from CE to EE

Since today when doing an apt update i get the following:

E: Repository 'https://download.docker.com/linux/ubuntu bionic InRelease' changed its 'Label' value from 'Docker CE' to 'Docker EE'
N: This must be accepted explicitly before updates for this repository can be applied. See apt-secure(8) manpage for details.

Why is this change and what should i do to keep using the CE version.


I can confirm this behaviour too. Specifically, in the repo (https://download.docker.com/linux/ubuntu/dists/bionic/), files Release and InRelease contain:

Label: Docker EE

I cannot find where it was changed in GitHub repo.

Same here: Linux Mint 19.2

Same here. it completely broke automatic updates on my Ubuntu 19.10. Any quick fixes?

Related discussion at GitHub:

Temporary fix:

sudo apt-get --allow-releaseinfo-change update

That temporary fix is not recommended, you turn off the security features of apt. Lets just hope the repository maintainers fix this quickly


Can confirm that. I’d like to update our servers and now, I’m not sure what’s going on. Anyway I’d also wait for the fix prior updating servers.

Same issue on Debian buster, strech.

Same issue with Ubuntu 18.04. My ansible playbooks stopped working due to this issue.

Same issue with Ubuntu 19.04

Issue has been fixed by the docker people in the repo.

I fix problem with:
apt update
and accept the new label:
E: the repository “https://download.docker.com/linux/ubuntu bionic InRelease” added the “Label” value from “Docker EE” to “Docker CE”
N: This must be accepted before updates can be applied from this repository. For more information see the page man apt-secure(8).
Accept the changes and continue updating from this repository? [y/N] y
