How to Install Docker on Ubuntu 19.04 “Disco”


So my options were:

  1. Just use the distro provided package of Docker. It’s old, Docker v18.09.
  2. Use the Snap package. It’s even older at v18.06.
  3. Install the testing version of Docker at v19.03.0-beta5. This is what I’ll do below.

Here’s how to install Docker on Ubuntu 19.04 (as of June 1st, 2019):

curl -fsSL | sudo apt-key add -
sudo add-apt-repository "deb [arch=amd64] disco stable test"
sudo apt update
sudo apt install docker-ce docker-ce-cli
sudo adduser $(whoami) docker  

Once Docker builds a package for Ubuntu 19.04, we won’t have to install the testing/beta anymore. Until then, this is how to get Docker installed.
