Cannot install Docker Desktop on Linux Mint 21.0, missing dependency

Linux Mint 21.0, (Ubuntu 22.04) x64 Cinnamon


Following instructions here: Install Docker Desktop on Ubuntu | Docker Documentation the install fails at sudo apt-get install ./docker-desktop-4.13.1-amd64.deb with the following error:-

The following packages have unmet dependencies. docker-desktop : Depends: docker-ce-cli but it is not installable E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.

Please advise.

I’ve been at this for a week and a suggestion from the Linux Mint community has enabled the installation to complete and that is to change the repo step to :-

echo \ "deb [arch=$(dpkg --print-architecture) signed-by=/etc/apt/keyrings/docker.gpg] \ jammy stable" | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/docker.list > /dev/null

Very slow to start, but at least it starts :slight_smile:

Leaving this here to help others.
