The install doc here: https://docs.docker.com/engine/installation/linux/ubuntulinux/ says I can install this on Ubuntu 16.04. This is the error I’m getting on step 11 of the installation instructions:
root@ubuntu:/# apt-cache policy docker-engine
N: Unable to locate package docker-engine
I couldn’t find anything when searching these forums or on google for my scenario. I’m sure I’m just doing something stupid, I’m not familiar with installing programs with Ubuntu. Here is my os info:
~|⇒ uname -a
Linux ubuntu 4.4.0-15-generic #31-Ubuntu SMP Fri Mar 18 19:08:31 UTC 2016 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

Description: Ubuntu Xenial Xerus (development branch)
I am running this in vmware workstation player 12. I just downloaded and installed all of this yesterday. It’s 64bit, not 32 (the one article in these forums that was somewhat similar to my problem had someone trying to install it on a 32 bit install).
This is my docker.list file (I created this based on the information in step 7 of the instructions above):
root@ubuntu:/# cat /etc/apt/sources.list.d/docker.list
deb https://apt.dockerproject.org/repo ubuntu-xenial main
There’s nothing else in that directory
root@ubuntu:/# ll /etc/apt/sources.list.d/
drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 4096 Apr 15 08:20 ./
drwxr-xr-x 6 root root 4096 Apr 15 08:19 …/
-rw-r–r-- 1 root root 58 Apr 15 08:20 docker.list
The apt-transport-https and ca-certificates install went fine. There was no error running the apt-key command. I’ve run apt-get update multiple times and restarted the vm. I have no idea what else to try. Any help is greatly appreciated.
