Following the steps below will let you realize that installing Docker on Ubuntu 19.04 is not that hard as it seems, so let’s see how you can do it.


  • Ubuntu 19.04
  • sudo privileges

Install Docker

As a first step you need to update the system packages.

sudo apt-get update

If there are some packages installed you can get rid of them with.

sudo apt remove docker docker-engine containerd runc

You need to import repository GPG key.

curl -fsSL | sudo apt-key add -

Now we will add the Docker CE repository to Ubuntu.

sudo add-apt-repository "deb [arch=amd64] $(lsb_release -cs) stable"

To install Docker CE on Ubuntu 19.04, run:

sudo apt update
sudo apt install docker-ce docker-ce-cli

You can verify the installation with:

sudo docker version

We can also check if the Docker daemon is started with the following command:

sudo systemctl status docker


 docker.service - Docker Application Container Engine
   Loaded: loaded (/lib/systemd/system/docker.service; enabled; vendor preset: enabled)
   Active: active (running) since Fri 2019-12-13 23:27:50 CET; 9min ago
 Main PID: 9941 (dockerd)
    Tasks: 13
   CGroup: /system.slice/docker.service
           └─9941 /usr/bin/dockerd -H fd:// --containerd=/run/containerd/containerd.sock

Docker command

If you want to check all available subcommands, run:

sudo docker

Also, if you want to check the system information about Docker, run:

sudo docker info

To check only the space available for the Docker containers on your machine, execute:

sudo docker info | grep "Data Space"
