Docker installation on Ubuntu 20.04

ae flag

I'm following the official Docker installation guide to install docker on Ubuntu Focla (20.04).

When I get to

sudo apt-get install docker-ce docker-ce-cli

I get the following errors:

Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
Package docker-ce is not available, but is referred to by another package.
This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or
is only available from another source
However the following packages replace it:

E: Package 'docker-ce' has no installation candidate 
E: Unable to locate package docker-ce-cli 
E: Unable to locate package
E: Couldn't find any package by glob '' 
E: Couldn't find any package by regex ''

I am a novice Linux user and I appreciate any help on how to resolve this issue.

Official guide is working. I have just tested it in fresh 20.04 LTS VM. You are probably doing something wrong.

Most people don’t grasp that asking a lot of questions unlocks learning and improves interpersonal bonding. In Alison’s studies, for example, though people could accurately recall how many questions had been asked in their conversations, they didn’t intuit the link between questions and liking. Across four studies, in which participants were engaged in conversations themselves or read transcripts of others’ conversations, people tended not to realize that question asking would influence—or had influenced—the level of amity between the conversationalists.
