Steps to run Ubuntu 22.04 LTS Jellyfish as Docker Container

Step 2: Pull Ubuntu 22.04 Jammy Jellyfish Docker Images
Now, use the pull command to download the latest image of Ubuntu 22.04 available in the docker’s library with tag- jammy.
docker pull ubuntu:jammy
Step 3: Create Ubuntu Jammy Container
Once we have the image, let’s create the container using the downloaded Ubuntu 22.04 Image.
docker create -it --name jelly ubuntu:jammy
–name jelly: jelly is the name we are assigning to our container; you can use whatever you want.
ubuntu:jammy: It is the name of the image we have downloaded.
Step 4: Start the Container
After creating the container successfully, let’s start the same using the name we have assigned to it.
docker start jelly
Step: Access the Ubuntu 22.04 Container command line
The container has been started successfully in the background but yet you won’t have the access to its command-line bash to issue the command for installing or building applications on it further. To get the CLI, attach the container for your current session.
docker attach jelly
