How to install experimental Docker versions on my Ubuntu 16.04 LTS

In order to have bleeding edge docker packages in Ubuntu, you can follow these instructions:

1. Add the following line to /etc/apt/sources.list:

  • deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/docker/experimental/ubuntu xenial main

    deb-src http://ppa.launchpad.net/docker/experimental/ubuntu xenial main

2. Add the PPA key to your keyring

  • $ sudo apt-key adv --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com --recv-keys 0x6c09f330d9d32a57

3. Install the package itself

  • $ sudo apt-get update

    $ sudo apt-get install docker.io

4. Remove the old aufs directory

  • $ sudo mv /var/lib/docker/aufs /var/lib/docker/aufs.old

5. Restart docker daemon

  • $ sudo systemctl restart docker

6. Docker is now up and running

  • $ docker --version Docker version 1.10.2, build c3959b1
