How can I upgrade Docker on a Mac?
I tried just ‘docker-machine upgrade’ and that did some work but I don’t seem to have the latest CLI.
If I do ‘docker version’ I get:
Client: Version: 1.8.2 API version: 1.20 Go version: go1.4.2 Git commit: 0a8c2e3 Built: Thu Sep 10 19:10:10 UTC 2015 OS/Arch: darwin/amd64 Server: Version: 1.11.2 API version: 1.23 Go version: go1.5.4 Git commit: b9f10c9 Built: 2016-06-01T21:20:08.558909126+00:00 OS/Arch: linux/amd64
I understand there are some new commands I’m not seeing so I suspect I don’t have the latest software.

Since you are on mac, you should install homebrew and from there you can install and upgrade docker with the command
brew install docker and
brew upgrade. Homebrew is a package manager for mac that makes installation of such applications easy.
Just try this way:
$ mkdir ~/docker $ curl -Lo ~/docker/docker-1.13.0-dev https://master.dockerproject.org/darwin/amd64/docker-1.13.0-dev $ sudo rm -f /usr/local/bin/docker $ sudo ln -s ~/docker/docker-1.13.0-dev /usr/local/bin/docker
you can find all current master branch in this link
For homebrew usage: I needed to overwrite the last version of docker by using:
brew link --overwrite docker
