Docker Upgrade from v1.11 to v1.12 using apt-get on Ubuntu 14.04.4 LTS

I was trying to upgrade docker as is suggsted in its manual

    sudo apt-get upgrade docker-engine

For some unknown reasons this will result in fetching and unpacking almost every package and library in my linux ( linux-images, lightdm, jvm,etc.). This has been going on for an hour now.

  • chrome fake audioinput with real audio output?
  • Can docker containers be run on live web servers?
  • Modify Node stack trace paths for use in Docker containers
  • Restarting Containers When Using Docker and Nginx proxy_pass
  • Does anyone have a working trivial example of a Dockerfile & command line that mount an external directory from linux into the docker image?
  • Docker Error response from daemon: service endpoint with name.
  • Does anyone have any idea what is going wrong and how it can be stopped without messing up my Ubuntu installation?
    ( in case you are planning to upgrade your docker using this, just don’t. a purge an reinstall is a much better choice if you like your Ubuntu)

  • Dockerfile ADD https://zzzz x509: certificate signed by unknown authority
  • How do I integrate my git PHP repo into an official Docker Hub container?
  • Docker. Connect from one container to another container with mysql
  • Maven: build Docker images of children projects

    apt-get upgrade always upgrades all the packages on your machine.

    You want

    $ apt-get update && apt-get install docker-engine -y
    
    Docker will be the best open platform for developers and sysadmins to build, ship, and run distributed applications.
