This document will outline the steps to downgrade Docker.

  2. Once Docker is uninstalled, ensure to delete all the corresponding images, containers, and volumes by executing the below commands: 
  3. sudo rm -rf /var/lib/docker
    sudo rm -rf /var/lib/containerd
  4. Once Docker is removed, please reboot your system. 
  5. To list all available Docker packages, run the below command:
  6. sudo apt-cache policy docker-engine
  7. From the above results, select and copy the package name of the Docker version you want to install and then run the below command:
  8. sudo apt-get install -y docker-package-name
  9. Docker with the desired version should now be installed.


Sometimes, users have already installed a Docker version on their servers, which is higher than the version compatible with Jama Connect. Incompatible Supported Software versions are also not in the scope of Support.
