Install Docker Host

First, make sure that all of the latest patches are installed.

sudo apt update
sudo apt dist-upgrade
sudo reboot

Add Docker's GPG key that they use to sign the packages and repository:

wget -qO - https://download.docker.com/linux/ubuntu/gpg | sudo apt-key add -
 
cat > /tmp/docker.list << EOF
deb [arch=amd64] https://download.docker.com/linux/ubuntu $(lsb_release -cs) stable
EOF
 
sudo mv /tmp/docker.list /etc/apt/sources.list.d/
 
sudo apt update

Install Docker

sudo apt install docker-ce -y

Verify Docker installed correctly:

sudo docker run hello-world

Use the below command to add additional users to the docker group but at a minimum, you should configure your user account to be able to execute docker commands:

sudo usermod -aG docker $USER

Configure Docker to start on boot:

sudo systemctl enable docker
