Error installing docker-ce in Debian 9 with kernel 4.16.0


(Noppes123) #1

On Debian 9 with backported kernel 4.16 I get an error installing docker-ce:

I suppose there is some confusion about the exact version, since there is also mention of ‘4.16.16-2’ in the backports repository.
How can I fix this?
