Your Docker installation is not working correctly on Linux/ARM

I’ve done a fresh install on Unbuntu 16.04 and even did another fresh one to get the same error below.

standard_init_linux.go:195: exec user process caused "exec format error"
Your Docker installation is not working correctly

Hope you can help. I followed the official Discourse install guide.

Thanks :slight_smile:

There has been some issues with ARM infrastructure in the past in which would be worth searching for - such as the following - however you may need some assistance from someone who knows the infrastructure better than myself.

Discourse isn’t supported in arm64 arch, only x86_64.
