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:

  • Docker Volumes mounting issue
  • Using a volume with a redmine docker container in Bluemix
  • gitlab-ci runner's Docker Executor | How can I see docker container where the build is going on?
  • Install Docker CE on Ubuntu 15.04 Vivid
  • Volume is not shared between nodes of Docker Swarm
  • Pull image Azure Container Registry - Kubernetes
  • Client:

    I understand there are some new commands I’m not seeing so I suspect I don’t have the latest software.

  • Docker can't expose mesos port 5050
  • Does anyone know a docker image that contains The MySQL Test Framework, Version 2.0?
  • Containers can not connect after docker update
  • Android ABI linked to wrong target
  • View dockerFile associated with tag
  • Provide environment variables to elastic beanstalk docker deployment

    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
    $ 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

    Check with

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