Installing docker behind a proxy
If you are trying to install docker behind a proxy, you might run into multiple problems.
The first one is getting the gpg key for apt.
From the install instructions for ubuntu, you see the directive to download the apt key. What they don’t tell you on that page is that you need an extra cli option like so:
sudo apt-key adv --keyserver-options http-proxy=http://proxy.example.com:8080/ --keyserver hkp://p80.pool.sks-keyservers.net:80 --recv-keys 58118E89F3A912897C070ADBF76221572C52609D
Pulling images behind a proxy
And then of course since you’re behind that proxy, you might have issues with docker downloading images.
Here are the condensed instructions from the full explanation at the official docker docs.
mkdir /etc/systemd/system/docker.service.d cat </etc/sytemd/system/docker.service.d/http-proxy.conf [Service] Environment="HTTP_PROXY=http://proxy.example.com:80/" "NO_PROXY=localhost,127.0.0.1,docker-registry.somecorporation.com" EOF systemctl daemon-reload systemctl restart docker
