Getting started with Docker on Debian Jessie

This is a quick start guide for installing docker on Debian 8(Jessie). Let us enable the required repositories for installing Docker.

Add the following lines to the file /etc/apt/sources.list

deb jessie-backports main contrib non-free
deb-src jessie-backports main contrib non-free

Let us update the package list by running the following command

#apt-get update

Now let us install docker from the updated package list.

#apt-get install docker-io

Once the installation we can try pulling a OS layer from the docker repository.

#docker search debian

The output will be something like this
