I am installing docker desktop on Ubuntu 22 using the .deb package. However, "sudo apt install" is giving the following error message: "docker-desktop : Depends: docker-ce-cli but it is not installable".

Before running "sudo apt install", I ran the commands given on docker website to set up the repository. Am I missing anything? What should I do to fix the error?

It seems that you forget to update the apt package index after setting up the repository. Run the following command on the terminal before running "sudo apt-get install ./docker-desktop-<version>-<arch>.deb," and it should fix the error.

sudo apt-get update
