Upgrading the docker version on ubuntu box

#1

While rebuilding the container for my discourse forum, I received the following error.

Docker version 0.11.1 not supported, please upgrade to at least 1.6.0

I check the version of my docker installation and it turned out to be 0.11.1

$docker -v
Docker version 0.11.1

I used the following commands to upgrade it to the latest version.

  • Check installed packages in the system

      $dpkg -l | grep docker
      ii  lxc-docker           1.9.1     amd64        Linux container runtime
      rc  lxc-docker-0.11.1    0.11.1    amd64        Linux container runtime
    
  • Install the latest version

      $sudo apt-get install lxc-docker
    
  • Check installed packages
