So you got yourself this bad ass new shiny Ubuntu guest on your virtual box, and now you are thinking "I can do this docker"
Well you can't, cause if you weren't having issues, you wouldn't have found this dank little corner of the interwebz. You just want to go back to your cat pictures and get your boss off your back.
You have seen the low res videos by the mouth breathers, the official docker videos, and the "fan made" tribute to docker where they all but jizz all over this technology because they were the first one to figure it out.
But enough of them, we are here to talk about me, let's get it rolling shall we.
The current lie is that the install works the same on Ubuntu as well as RHEL types, but I have not tried it yet. Well the first don't use the package manager to install it, if you did force remove it now, I'll wait.
First check the version just because,
hifi@dockerxx:~$ docker --version Docker version 1.0.1, build 990021a
See, it is too low of a version to be useful. REMOVE IT!
hifi@dockerxx:~$ sudo apt-get purge docker.io Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree Reading state information... Done The following packages were automatically installed and are no longer required: aufs-tools cgroup-lite git git-man liberror-perl Use 'apt-get autoremove' to remove them. The following packages will be REMOVED: docker.io* 0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 1 to remove and 175 not upgraded. After this operation, 24.7 MB disk space will be freed. Do you want to continue?

Processing triggers for man-db (126.96.36.199-1) ... hifi@dockerxx:~$ docker --version -bash: /usr/bin/docker: No such file or directory
Now that is what we should do here is just use the funky curl program to install it, because why not curl it.
You don't even have to sudo it, the docker install script will do it all for you.
hifi@dockerxx:~$ curl -sSL https://get.docker.com/ | sh apparmor is enabled in the kernel and apparmor utils were already installed <CUT> Server: Version: 1.8.1 API version: 1.20 Go version: go1.4.2 Git commit: d12ea79 Built: Thu Aug 13 02:35:49 UTC 2015 OS/Arch: linux/amd64 If you would like to use Docker as a non-root user, you should now consider adding your user to the "docker" group with something like: sudo usermod -aG docker hifi Remember that you will have to log out and back in for this to take effect!
You can do the group mod or not, beware there is no audit trail with docker if you use the group for all your admins. Your call.
You want to test it now, so go ahead, do it, run the hello-world container. Make it grow like the hairs of your beard before your Friday night date. You know you want to touch it.
hifi@dockerxx:~$ sudo docker run hello-world Unable to find image 'hello-world:latest' locally latest: Pulling from library/hello-world 535020c3e8ad: Pull complete af340544ed62: Pull complete Digest: sha256:a68868bfe696c00866942e8f5ca39e3e31b79c1e50feaee4ce5e28df2f051d5c 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. 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, go ahead, flex those muscles.
You can run an Ubuntu container with: $ docker run -it ubuntu bash Share images, automate workflows, and more with a free Docker Hub account: https://hub.docker.com For more examples and ideas, visit: https://docs.docker.com/userguide/
Notice above, the image was not already on the system, so it pulled the image down and then ran it, only eating your precious little bits.
hifi@dockerxx:~$ sudo docker ps CONTAINER ID IMAGE COMMAND CREATED STATUS PORTS NAMES
Huh, how about that, there is no containers running. Well crap. Maybe we should verify it first?
Use the -a switch after docker ps to view all images that have run, and there it is.
hifi@dockerxx:~$ sudo docker ps -a CONTAINER ID IMAGE COMMAND CREATED STATUS PORTS NAMES 18b47d59004c hello-world "/hello" 5 minutes ago Exited (0) 5 minutes ago dreamy_pike
I wanna give it another whirl, this time with some slightly different switches to verify that things worked.
I am just going to test with the default ubuntu image and download that hot mess of 600MB
I did docker run -ti ubuntu /bin/bash to make it run it and give me the command prompt.
The switches here are defined as Interactive (i) and a pseudo-TTY (t) that will allow me to run bash interactively.
hifi@dockerxx:~$ sudo docker run -ti ubuntu /bin/bash Unable to find image 'ubuntu:latest' locally latest: Pulling from library/ubuntu d3a1f33e8a5a: Pull complete c22013c84729: Pull complete d74508fb6632: Pull complete 91e54dfb1179: Already exists library/ubuntu:latest: The image you are pulling has been verified. Important: image verification is a tech preview feature and should not be relied on to provide security.

Notice the prompt at the end there, root@407b1d4342bd:/#
That says you are in the container and ready to go.
Once you exit the container it stops the docker process dies a horrible, lovely death as you get dropped back onto your standard command prompt
