se the following command to set up the stable repository. You always need the stable repository, even if you want to install builds from the edge or test repositories as well. To add the edge or test repository, add the word edge or test (or both) after the word stable in the commands below.

Note: The lsb_release -cs sub-command below returns the name of your Debian distribution, such as jessie.

To also add the edge repository, add edge after stable on the last line of the command.


$ sudo add-apt-repository \
“deb [arch=amd64] \
$(lsb_release -cs) \


$ echo “deb [arch=armhf] \
$(lsb_release -cs) stable” | \
sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/docker.list

Wheezy only: The version of add-apt-repository on Wheezy adds a deb-src repository that does not exist. You need to comment out this repository or running apt-get update will fail. Edit /etc/apt/sources.list. Find the line like the following, and comment it out or remove it:

deb-src [arch=amd64] ht
