Set up the repository

To install MCR using the Mirantis repository you must first set up the repository on the host machine.

Note

MCR only supports x86_64/amd64.

  1. Update the apt package index:

    sudo apt-get update
    
  2. Install packages that allow apt to use a repository over HTTPS:

    sudo apt-get install \
      apt-transport-https \
      ca-certificates \
      curl \
      software-properties-common
    
  3. Store http://repos.mirantis.com in an environment variable:

    DOCKER_EE_URL="http://repos.mirantis.com"
    
  4. Add a $DOCKER_EE_VERSION variable into your environment.

    DOCKER_EE_VERSION=<mcr-version>
    
  5. Add Docker’s official GPG key:

    curl -fsSL "${DOCKER_EE_URL}/ubuntu/gpg" | sudo apt-key add -
    
  6. Verify that you now have the key with the fingerprint DD91 1E99 5A64 A202 E859  07D6 BC14 F10B 6D08 5F96 by searching for the last eight characters of the fingerprint:

    sudo apt-key fingerprint 6D085F96
    
    pub   4096R/0EBFCD88 2017-02-22
          Key fingerprint = DD91 1E99 5A64 A202 E859  07D6 BC14 F10B 6D08 5F96
    uid                  Docker Release (EE deb) <docker@docker.com>
    sub   4096R/6D085F96 2017-02-22
    
  7. Use the following command to set up the stable repository:

    sudo add-apt-repository \
      "deb [arch=$(dpkg --print-architecture)] $DOCKER_EE_URL/ubuntu \
      $(lsb_release -cs) \
      stable-$DOCKER_EE_VERSION"
