alpine linux — autossh (missing)

I need to be able to :

RUN apk add --no-cache autossh

  • Executing shell command produces nothing
  • Pillow ImageFont is different in docker/Alpine and Ubuntu
  • Docker Alpine /bin/sh apk not found
  • alpine linux docker image, console encoding trouble
  • Docker: any way to list open sockets inside a running docker container?
  • getcap/setcap not working in docker container with Debian Stretch host
  • for migrating my project into alpine linux from ubuntu

    I’m getting an error while building the Dockerfile.. any workarounds?
    I cannot get rid of the autossh requirement as I need this to connect to me compose db.

    The command '/bin/sh -c apk add --no-cache autossh' returned a non-zero code: 1

    Package autossh is in the community repository and only edge branch, as you can check on pkgs.alpinelinux.org. Alpine has only main from a stable branch in /etc/apk/repositories by default, so to install package from another repository and branch, you have to add it here, e.g.:

    echo "http://dl-cdn.alpinelinux.org/alpine/edge/community" >> /etc/apk/repositories
    apk update
    

    Please try running apk update before that in docker file. Hope it works

    Docker will be the best open platform for developers and sysadmins to build, ship, and run distributed applications.
