I was experiencing an issue when installing the docker desktop on Ubuntu 22.04, as it throws the below error when I ran the below command.
sudo apt install ./docker-desktop-4.17.0-amd64.deb
Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree... Done Reading state information... Done Note, selecting 'docker-desktop' instead of './docker-desktop-4.17.0-amd64.deb' Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable distribution that some required packages have not yet been created or been moved out of Incoming. The following information may help to resolve the situation: The following packages have unmet dependencies: docker-desktop : Depends: docker-ce-cli but it is not installable E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.
After researching on Google and came up with the solution already discussed in the docker documentation.
1. Update the apt package index and install packages to allow apt to use a repository over HTTPS:
sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install \ ca-certificates \ curl \ gnupg \ lsb-release
2. Add Docker’s official GPG key:
sudo mkdir -m 0755 -p /etc/apt/keyrings curl -fsSL https://download.docker.com/linux/ubuntu/gpg | sudo gpg --dearmor -o /etc/apt/keyrings/docker.gpg
3. Use the following command to set up the repository:
echo \ "deb [arch=$(dpkg --print-architecture) signed-by=/etc/apt/keyrings/docker.gpg] https://download.docker.com/linux/ubuntu \ $(lsb_release -cs) stable" | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/docker.list > /dev/null
4. Update the libraries
sudo apt update -y
Now you can run the installation command again.
