Hi guys! I’m trying to install BigBlueButton and it workes so far (sudo bbb-conf --status marks all parts as active).
The docker installation using the repository fails, though (sudo apt-get install docker-ce docker-ce-cli containerd .io).

I tried for days now. Uninstalled and deleted everything as seen on docker page (“uninstalling docker”). Some guys had similar problems but the solutions I found didn’t work for me.

Thanks in advance!
greetings

/edit: I’m using a totally fresh install of Ubuntu Server 16.04. (necessary for BigBlueButton). I installed a GUI (xfce4).

Don’t quite know what your runtime is but I just fixed a problem with docker-ce not installing / failing to configure on RPi with Debian Buster 10.7 – I found instructions on here Run the Docker daemon as a non-root user (Rootless mode) | Docker Documentation
which pointed me to absence of overlayfs , seemed to be missing in 10.7 so I upgraded to 10.8 and everything just sprang to life.
Amazing how long it takes to search the right question
this might suit you
ubuntu/ubuntu-bionic.git - Unnamed repository; edit this file 'description' to name the repository.

Thanks for your hint! I tried to upgrade / activete overlayfs, but the errors are still there. Now I’m trying to install greenlight for BigBlueButton without Docker

Well, best wishes for that
