Unable to install docker-engine on Ubuntu 14

(Felicity) #1

Dear all,

I am trying to install docker-engine on Ubuntu 14, but I fail.
I have tried the apt-get but I get : E: Unable to locate package docker-engine

I have tried to do the installation with curl (see here:
and i get the error Hash Sum mismatch

Same here following the instructions:
I use deb … ubuntu-trusty main ( sorry I am not allowed to use a 3rd url)
but the new GPG key doesn’t seem to be updated.

I am fearing that your documentation is not updated. Can you please point me to the correct direction?

Thank you in advance. Looking forward to your reply.

I’m facing the same issues. It was working earlier today, but is now falling.
It seems there was a change to the repo today at 11:02.

Any update on when this will be resolved would be appreciated.

Hello, I confirm the problem.
We use docker apt repository but get the error at apt get-update run:
W: Failed to fetch Hash Sum mismatch

I just found this issue here after creating an own entry: Updating Docker packages list fails "Hash Sum mismatch"

We are facing the same issue.
