How to install Docker on Ubuntu 18.04

To install Docker on my Ubuntu 18.04 machines I followed the instructions from the Docker's website: https://docs.docker.com/install/linux/docker-ce/ubuntu/

$ lsb_release -a
No LSB modules are available.
Distributor ID: Ubuntu
Description: Ubuntu 18.04.3 LTS
Release: 18.04
Codename: bionic

$ sudo apt-get update

sudo apt-get install \
>     apt-transport-https \
>     ca-certificates \
>     curl \
>     gnupg-agent \
>     software-properties-common


$ curl -fsSL https://download.docker.com/linux/ubuntu/gpg | sudo apt-key add -
OK

$ apt-key fingerprint 0EBFCD88
pub   rsa4096 2017-02-22 [SCEA]
      9DC8 5822 9FC7 DD38 854A  E2D8 8D81 803C 0EBF CD88
uid           [ unknown] Docker Release (CE deb) <docker@docker.com>
sub   rsa4096 2017-02-22 [S]

$ sudo add-apt-repository \
>    "deb [arch=amd64] https://download.docker.com/linux/ubuntu \
>    $(lsb_release -cs) \
>    stable"


$ sudo apt-get update

$ sudo apt-get install docker-ce docker-ce-cli containerd.io

sudo docker run hello-world
Unable to find image 'hello-world:latest' locally
latest: Pulling from library/hello-world
1b930d010525: Pull complete
Digest: sha256:2557e3c07ed1e38f26e389462d03ed943586f744621577a99efb77324b0fe535
Status: Downloaded newer image for hello-world:latest

Hello from Docker!
This message shows that your installation appears to be working correctly.

To generate this message, Docker took the following steps:
 1. The Docker client contacted the Docker daemon.
 2. The Docker daemon pulled the "hello-world" image from the Docker Hub.
    (amd64)
 3. The Docker daemon created a new container from that image which runs the
    executable that produces the output you are currently reading.
 4. The Docker daemon streamed that output to the Docker client, which sent it
    to your terminal.

To try something more ambitious, you can run an Ubuntu container with:
 $ docker run -it ubuntu bash

How to run Docker as non-root user?


Your regular user has to be added to the docker group (whose members are allowed to communicate wtih Docker daemon which runs as root):

$ sudo usermod -aG docker $USER

$ newgrp docker

$ docker run hello-world
