How to install Docker

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!

You did that command in the console. You have to type that command in the shell instead. Hope that works :)

Replit has a new system called Nix, which makes it way easier to install packages. Create a new file called replit.nix and put this in there:

{ pkgs }: { deps = [ pkgs.docker ]; }

That should work. More info here.
