[SOLVED] Can't add docker repository Mint Ulyssa

Hi, I’m trying to install docker in Mint Ulyssa and it fails when fetching the release file in the corresponding repository. Acording to docker docs:

echo \
"deb [arch=amd64 signed-by=/usr/share/keyrings/docker-archive-keyring.gpg] https://download.docker.com/linux/ubuntu \
$(lsb_release -cs) stable" | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/docker.list > /dev/null

and when

sudo apt update

I get this error:

Tryied adding directly some other repos like

 deb [arch=amd64] https://download.docker.com/linux/ubuntu focal stable

to

/etc/apt/sources.list

but didn’t work either.
I’m using ZSH shell, just to say.
Thank you all!

what does it say when you added the focal?
did you remember to remove the first one?

Yes I’ve noticed the fact of reuturnning Mint distro specifically but returning Focal, e.g., didn’t work.
Sudenly i’ve noticed a warning entry asking for entry points, and that solve the issue.
Don’t which repo finally added ahaha.
Thank you for the help.

Said the same, and no i didn’t removed it, when i go to /etc/apt/sources.list it does not appear the one added with

echo \
"deb [arch=amd64 signed-by=/usr/share/keyrings/docker-archive-keyring.gpg] https://download.docker.com/linux/ubuntu \
$(lsb_release -cs) stable" | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/docker.list > /dev/null

The main issue is what happens when capturing linux version with $(lsb_release -cs) in linux mint, cause there is no repo for their specific distros.

Remove this file

/etc/apt/sources.listd/docker.list

Hi guys, I hope you are well
I also want to install Drocker on Linux mint 20.1 (Ulyssa), the part that is discussed here I did as it appears below

echo "deb [arch=amd64 signed-by=/usr/share/keyrings/docker-archive-keyring.gpg] https://download.docker.com/linux/ubuntu focal stable" | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/docker.list > /dev/null

However, now I have the following problem

Beforehand thank you very much
