I am currently building a Dockerfile, in which I need the latest Python version (3.9) and Python 3.6.
I chose python:latest as my base image, but when I try to install python 3.6 using apt I get “Unable to locate package …”.
The command I run:
RUN apt-get update
&& apt-get -y install python36 python36-devel python36-pip
&& apt-get clean all
I found a few discussions on the Internet where people had similar issues and adding
apt-get update worked for them, but I still get the following error:

Is there any other solution to this except for switching to another base image (like ubuntu) and installing both versions manually?
