Hello everybody, I am a new to this forum and to Docker in general.
I am currently trying to install Docker on a Ubuntu 16.04 64-bit VPS hosted by RamNode
I am having an error message trying to install the Docker package:
(I used apt-get update, rebooted multiple times, tried using the “wget -qO- https://get.docker.com/ | sh” command with the same results.)

I could not find a similar issue on the forum, but I must admit I am not the best at solution-hunting.
Would anyone have a suggestion ?
