[SOLVED] Installing Docker on CentOS 6 after removal of docker-io ~ Linux Fixes
For some time, the
docker-io package has been used to install Docker on CentOS 6.
Since early this month, this package no longer appears to be available:
[firstname.lastname@example.org:0 yum.repos.d]# yum install docker-io Loaded plugins: fastestmirror, presto Setting up Install Process Determining fastest mirrors * base: mirror.intergrid.com.au * extras: mirror.ventraip.net.au * updates: mirror.ventraip.net.au base | 3.7 kB 00:00 base/primary_db | 4.7 MB 00:00 epel | 4.7 kB 00:00 epel/primary_db | 6.0 MB 00:00 extras | 3.4 kB 00:00 extras/primary_db | 28 kB 00:00 updates | 3.4 kB 00:00 updates/primary_db | 3.2 MB 00:00 No package docker-io available. Error: Nothing to do
docker-io was previously part of the epel repository and has been the recommended way to install Docker (albeit, an older version) on CentOS 6 in a number of places.
Is there any other way Docker can be installed on CentOS 6?
I’m not sure why
docker-io suddenly disappeared, but the same version previously available through the epel repository can be installed directly from this rpm hosted by Docker:
[root@server]# yum install https://get.docker.com/rpm/1.7.1/centos-6/RPMS/x86_64/docker-engine-1.7.1-1.el6.x86_64.rpm [root@server]# docker --version Docker version 1.7.0, build 0baf609
