    Hi @paccha5065

    I moved your post under the LFS261 forum, for proper placement and follow up. Your command is missing a space between containerd.io and docker-compose-plugin, which throws the error you are seeing, because 'containerd.iodocker-compose-plugin' package does not exist. The correct command should be:

    sudo apt-get install docker-ce docker-ce-cli containerd.io docker-compose-plugin
