How to install Docker
rainbowglitch

Hello, I am making a discord bot and am using an open source one.
I am required to install docker but am not able to. I am a newbie to repl and so I do not know much. This might be a stupid question but it is essential to me.
The error shown in the console is below:

E: Could not open lock file /var/lib/dpkg/lock-frontend - open (13: Permission denied)

E: Unable to acquire the dpkg frontend lock (/var/lib/dpkg/lock-frontend), are you root?

Thanks!

Why do you need to install docker?

@emilyUsesPascal I am using a discord bot module that requires it
The language is Go

@rainbowglitch whats the module?

@emilyUsesPascal I do not know the name(I forgot and the bot is so large and has too many files for me to check in a small amount of time). The bot is open source and is known as YAGPDB(not developed by me)

@rainbowglitch if your planing on only hosting you, you should not need to worry, as a repl project itself is just a docker container

thanks but when i tried a command it gave me this
"bash: docker-compose: command not found"

@rainbowglitch Sadly I do not think you can use docker on repl.it
You can try by creating a polyglot repl here: http://repl.it/l/polygott

and using install-pkg
