How to install Docker on Ubuntu 17.04

This tutorial is going to show you how to install Docker on Ubuntu 17.04. Docker is a popular and modern virtualization software. For more information about Docker, please visit Docker Official Website. Docker is available in Ubuntu official repository (Docker.io) and actually its also available via Docker.com repository (docker-ce). But unfortunately, I was unable to install Docker Community Edition on my Ubuntu 17.04. I think the repository is not update to this current Zesty Zapus release yet.

Steps to install Docker on Ubuntu 17.04
