Upgrading Docker in Amazon linux AMI to 1.11.1
The docker version in my amazon linux is 1.9.1 and I want to upgrade it to 1.11.1.
But yum update doesn’t upgrade the docker version and it still at 1.9.1.

If you are just using yum update, it won’t work, because it will only look at the amazon yum repositories that they have setup. You will need to install a yum repo that has a newer version of Docker. I recommend going to the official Docker yum repository to get your Docker packages.
These directions are for CentOS, but they should work for Amazon linux, since they are both RedHat derivatives.
