Docker Installation on Ubuntu using Package Manager

(Conz27) #1


Why does Docker not have DEB packages for the Ubuntu distributions? As a regular Ubuntu user I’m used to doing a “sudo apt-add-repository ppa:(repository)” command followed by a “sudo apt-key adv …” using the Ubuntu keyserver.

I don’t like the idea of having to run a bash script I downloaded off the internet with root privileges.

Are there any plans to keep the PPA up to date or create a new one for docker-engine that can be added as part of Ubuntu’s packages?

There is already a Docker Inc maintained yum and apt repository and you can find it here. and

The script you are running is actually adding this repository and installing.
