Updating Docker on Windows Server

Here’s a quick guide how to update Docker on Windows Server 2016.
First things first, lets open an elevated PowerShell session and run the following commands in order to update the installed Docker to a higher version.

The first thing is to check what version is currently installed

PS > Get-Package -Name Docker -ProviderName DockerMsftProvider

Run this command to find the latest version currently available.

PS > Find-Package -Name Docker -ProviderName DockerMsftProvider

If there is a newer version available you could update Docker with the following command.

PS > Install-Package -Name Docker -ProviderName DockerMsftProvider -Update -Force

Once the update have been updated successfully the latest thing we need to do is start Docker.

PS > Start-Service Docker

The last thing is to verify that Docker is running on the latest version.

PS > docker version

That’s all, Docker is now successfully updated and running.
