Release for Raspberry Pi 4 (Raspbian Buster)


will there be a Docker packages for raspbian buster?

Raspi 4B is out and will be supported by Raspbian Buster. As Rpi4B is available with up to 4GB of RAM, it is perfect for running Docker on it. :wink:

For the Install script:


PRETTY_NAME=“Raspbian GNU/Linux 10 (buster)”
NAME=“Raspbian GNU/Linux”
VERSION=“10 (buster)”

Yep. Please, do it. We really need a Docker with this little monster :heart_eyes::smiling_imp:

I found a workaround:

edit your /etc/apt/sources.list.d/docker.list

deb [arch=armhf] 10 stable


deb [arch=armhf] stretch edge

or create that file if you dont have it.

The run

sudo apt update
sudo apt install docker-ce
sudo usermod -a -G docker $USER

Now reboot and Docker should be working.


It works better for me:

sudo curl -sL | sed 's/9)/10)/' | sh

I checked on Raspberry Pi 4 with Rapsbian Buster and it works well. I found this here.

Thanks for sharing with us, this works in my problem with TelltheBell.

The procedure from leonhess did the job.

Worked for me as well. I bought a Pi 4 especially to run Docker faster and though I’d have to wait for Docker to work until Buster was actually officially released… :wink:

So, Buster Nightly is available now. Just missing stable.

Correct, buster is only in nightly channel. You can use

curl -fsSL | CHANNEL=nightly sh

to install Docker on Raspbian Buster 2019-07-10-raspbian*.img until next stable release of Docker CE.
If you want to install a stable release now, you can use

curl -fsSL | sed 's/buster/stretch/' | sh

which installs 18.09.0 at the moment.


There seems to be a stable version out there now:

Can you please tell me how to install it correctly?
I get Cannot connect to the Docker daemon at unix:///var/run/docker.sock.
Is the docker daemon running?

did you start the service sudo systemctl start docker && sudo systemctl enable docker ??

So how do we install - doesn’t seem to be working via apt-get or curl

Is there a file (socket) at /var/run/docker.sock?
What do you get if you type ls -l /var/run/docker.sock?

I used the following line which worked for me, at least with the hello-world container:

curl -sSL | sh

thank you for this! this works on my latest windows project with raspberry.
