Lab 3.2 Step 5 times outs

Lab 3.2 Step 5 I am getting this error and I am not able to join the node to the cluster. It says docker version is not on list of validated versions. And it times out. Any one else seeing this problem? I am using GCP and Docker.

    Your error is tied to the identity of the control plane. Did you add k8smaster as an alias to the worker's /etc/hosts file?
