If you install the
docker.io package on ubuntu 14.04 you will get a fairly old version (0.9.1 at time of writing)
while 1.3 is the current version and has a lot of nice features you don't want to miss. So you can install the recent
version manually from the docker repos by running
curl -sSL https://get.docker.com/ubuntu/ | sudo sh as described in this tutorial.
Automation with SaltStack
If you want to automate this with SaltStack you can use this small salt state:
lxc-docker: pkgrepo.managed: - name: deb https://get.docker.com/ubuntu docker main - keyserver: keyserver.ubuntu.com - keyid: 36A1D7869245C8950F966E92D8576A8BA88D21E9 - require_in: - pkg: lxc-docker pkg: - installed
