Update Docker Centos 7

On the Docker installation guide for CentOS 7, it is advised to install docker from the binaries if you want the latest. I suggest you follow those instructions to install the latest docker. Docker now provides updates through the yum package manager. Docker has quickly become the most popular program for containerization. For CentOS users, that means an increase in the need to install Docker on CentOS. Luckily, the process for Docker installation on CentOS 6, CentOS 7, CentOS 8, and CentOS Stream is fairly simple. Installing Docker on CentOS 7 With Yum. Installing from Docker repositories using the yum command is the easiest and most popular method. Step 1: Update Docker Package Database. In a terminal window, type: sudo yum check-update. Allow the operation to complete. Step 2: Install the Dependencies.

ALT Linux 8+, Amazon Linux 1+, CentOS 7+, Debian 9+, Fedora 25+, openSUSE 15.2+, Mageia 7+, Photon OS 1.0+, Ubuntu 16.04+ The various manylinux tags allow projects to distribute wheels that are automatically installed (and work!) on the vast majority of desktop and server Linux distributions.

The Remote Development extension pack allows you to open any folder in a container, on a remote machine, or in the Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL) and take advantage of VS Code's full feature set. Since this lets you set up a full-time development environment anywhere, you can:

  • Develop on the same operating system you deploy to or use larger, faster, or more specialized hardware than your local machine.
  • Quickly swap between different, isolated development environments and safely make updates without worrying about impacting your local machine.
  • Help new team members / contributors get productive quickly with easily spun up, consistent development containers.
  • Take advantage of a Linux based tool-chain right from the comfort of Windows from a full-featured development tool.

No source code needs to be on your local machine to gain these benefits since Remote Development runs commands and extensions directly on the remote machine.

This Remote Development extension pack includes three extensions:

This guide should work with Fedora 33/32/31/30/29/28, CentOS 8.2/7.8/6.10/5.11, Red Hat (RHEL) 8.2/7.8/6.10/5.11. VirtualBox Guest Additions is special software that can be installed inside Linux virtual machines to improve performance and make integration much more seamless. Docker Compose is a tool used to define and run multi-container Docker applications. Users utilize this software to launch, execute, communicate, and close containers with a single coordinated command. This tutorial will show you how to install Docker Compose on CentOS 7. The official build of CentOS.

  • Remote - SSH - Work with source code in any location by opening folders on a remote machine/VM using SSH. Supports x86_64, ARMv7l (AArch32), and ARMv8l (AArch64) glibc-based Linux, Windows 10/Server (1803+), and macOS 10.14+ (Mojave) SSH hosts.
  • Remote - Containers - Work with a sandboxed toolchain or container based application by opening any folder mounted into or inside a container.
  • Remote - WSL - Get a Linux-powered development experience from the comfort of Windows by opening any folder in the Windows Subsystem for Linux.

System Requirements

Local: See the minimum requirements for VS Code. Windows support in Remote - Containers requires Windows 10 Professional or Enterprise is due to the requirements of Docker Desktop. See installation steps for additional details.

Remote host / container / WSL support:

Update Docker Centos 7
  • x86_64 / ARMv8l (AArch64) / ARM7l (AArch32) Debian/Raspbian 9+, Ubuntu 16.04+, Ubuntu IoT 18.04+, CentOS / RHEL 7+ SSH hosts, containers, or WSL distributions.
  • x86_64 Alpine Linux 3.7+ containers or WSL distributions (no SSH support yet).

Additional SSH support:

  • Windows 10 / Server 2016/2019 (1803+) using the official OpenSSH Server.
  • macOS 10.14+ (Mojave) SSH hosts with Remote Login enabled.

Update Docker Version Centos 7 Bootable

Other glibc based Linux SSH Hosts, containers, or WSL distributions may work if they have needed prerequisites.

Some extensions installed on ARMv7l (AArch32) and ARMv8l (AArch64) devices may not work due to the use of x86 native code in the extension. Similarly, extensions installed in Alpine Linux containers or the Alpine WSL distribution may not work due to glibc dependencies in native code inside the extension. See the Remote Development and Linux article for details.


  1. Install VS Code or VS Code Insiders and this extension pack. On Windows, be sure to check Add to PATH when asked to Select Additional Tasks during installation.

  2. Remote - SSH: Install an OpenSSH compatible SSH client.

  3. Remote - WSL: Install the Windows Subsystem for Linux along with your preferred Linux distribution. (Note that WSL2 support is experimental.)

  4. Remote - Containers: Install and configure Docker for your operating system.

    Windows / macOS:

    1. Install Docker Desktop 2.0+ for Mac/Windows. (Docker Toolbox is not supported, but Docker does not need to be running if you use a remote host.)
    2. Right-click on the Docker task bar item and update Settings / Preferences > Shared Drives / File Sharing with any source code locations you want to open in a container. See tips and tricks for details.


    1. Follow the official install instructions for Docker CE/EE 18.06+. If you use Docker Compose, follow the Docker Compose 1.21+ install directions.
    2. Add your user to the docker group by using a terminal to run: sudo usermod -aG docker $USER Sign out and back in again so this setting takes effect.

Working with Git? Here are three tips to consider:

  • If you are working with the same repository folder in Windows and WSL or a container, be sure to set up consistent line endings. See tips and tricks to learn how.
  • In WSL, you can also avoid passwords by configuring WSL to use the Windows Git credential manager. See tips and tricks to for details.
  • For containers, if you clone using a Git credential manager, your container should already have access to your credentials! If you use SSH keys, you can also opt-in to sharing them. See Sharing Git credentials with your container for details.

The Visual Studio Code Remote Development extension pack and its related extensions collect telemetry data to help us build a better experience working remotely from VS Code. We only collect data on which commands are executed. We do not collect any information about image names, paths, etc. The extension respects the telemetry.enableTelemetry setting which you can learn more about in the Visual Studio Code FAQ.
