#!/bin/bash
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get -y install apt-transport-https ca-certificates
sudo apt-key adv — keyserver hkp://p80.pool.sks-keyservers.net:80 — recv-keys 58118E89F3A912897C070ADBF76221572C52609D
touch /etc/apt/sources.list.d/docker.list
echo ‘deb https://apt.dockerproject.org/repo ubuntu-xenial main’ >> /etc/apt/sources.list.d/docker.list
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get -y purge lxc-docker
