Upgrading question


(Vrms) #1

Having installed Docker via the get.docker.com script … how do you upgrade to a new version? Just running the script again?

(Ubuntu/debian here)


(Vrms) #2

understand a little more of the matter and this is what I think happens

the get.docker.com script adds a software source repository here

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

Assumingly this will take care of docker being upgraded with every standard apt-get update && apt-get dist-upgrade, right?

if anybody who knows the things mentioned above are actually true it would be great if that someone would mark the answer as ‘correct’

Yes, docker will automatically upgrade with an apt-get update && apt-get dist-upgrade. The version on get.docker.com tends to be stable. They also have test and experimental builds for those that want to try out the latest releases. Instructions for those are listed at the top of http://get.docker.com.
