Docker complements kernel namespacing with a high-level API which operates at
the process level. It runs unix processes with strong guarantees of isolation
and repeatability across servers.
Docker is a great building block for automating distributed systems:
large-scale web deployments, database clusters, continuous deployment systems,
private PaaS, service-oriented architectures, etc.
This package contains the daemon and client. Using on non-amd64 hosts
is not supported at this time. Please be careful when using it on anything
besides amd64.
Also, note that kernel version 3.8 or above is required for proper operation of
the daemon process, and that any lower versions may have subtle and/or glaring

2018-11-12 - Michael Hudson-Doyle <> (18.06.1-0ubuntu1~16.04.2) xenial; urgency=medium
* d/tests/docker-in-lxd: Increase timeout passed to lxd waitready.
2018-10-24 - Michael Hudson-Doyle <> (18.06.1-0ubuntu1~16.04.1) xenial; urgency=medium
* Backport to Xenial (LP: #1794396). Includes fixes for
- "No option to configure for restart on package upgrade"
(LP: #1784602)
- " install fails when docker group exists" (LP: #1769911)
* Revert "Let dh_systemd install .service file: replace .install file entry
with symlink".
* Build with the freshly backported golang-1.10-go package.
* Relax the build dependency on debhelper.
* Build depend on btrfs-tools, not libbtrfs-dev or btrfs-progs.
* Re-add build-depends on dh-systemd.
2018-09-24 - Tianon Gravi <> (18.06.1-0ubuntu1) cosmic; urgency=medium
* Update to 18.06.1 upstream release (LP: #1794396)
- drop "fix-btrfs-constants.patch" (applied upstream)
* Update debconf to prompt more aggressively (LP: #1784602)
1. does not prompt on initial install (but does start the daemon)
2. does prompt on every reinstall / upgrade (if the daemon is running)
3. does prompt during "dpkg-reconfigure" (but does _not_
[re]start the daemon)
4. works properly with DEBIAN_FRONTEND=noninteractive -- user's
previous/stored answer to the question automatically applies with no
* Check if "docker" group exists before creating it (LP: #1769911)
2018-09-15 - St├ęphane Graber <> (17.12.1-0ubuntu6) cosmic; urgency=medium
* d/tests/docker-in-lxd: Avoid startup race and drop lxd-client depends
2018-08-01 - Michael Hudson-Doyle <> (17.12.1-0ubuntu5) cosmic; urgency=medium
* Fix ftbfs by cherry-picking
2018-06-05 - St├ęphane Graber <> (17.12.1-0ubuntu4) cosmic; urgency=medium
* d/tests/docker-in-lxd: only setup network bridge if missing
2018-05-22 - Michael Hudson-Doyle <> (17.12.1-0ubuntu3) cosmic; urgency=medium
* d/tests/docker-in-lxd: switch to ubuntu-daily lxd remote and wait
for cloud-init to finish before running commands in the container.
2018-05-17 - Dimitri John Ledkov <> (17.12.1-0ubuntu2) cosmic; urgency=medium
* Update btrfs dependencies to use the new libbtrfs-dev & btrfs-progs.
2018-02-28 - Tianon Gravi <> (17.12.1-0ubuntu1) bionic; urgency=medium
[ Tianon Gravi ]
* Update to 17.12.1-ce upstream release
- swap from to .../docker/docker-ce
- build separate components in a way that can be parallelized
- remove older (unsupported) contrib/ bits from being shipped
- drop a lot of unnecessary packaging bits from debian/
* Adjust debconf prompt:
- ask during _every_ upgrade
- default to not restarting
[ Michael Hudson-Doyle ]
* Switch to building with default version of Go.
* Adjust debconf template to match change in behavior.
2018-03-20 - Tyler Hicks <> (17.03.2-0ubuntu5) bionic; urgency=medium
* d/control, d/rules: Fix FTBFS when built with golang 1.10 by build
depending on golang-1.9-go. See
for upstream discussion on golang 1.10 compatibility.
