I'm running Ubuntu. If I run apt-get update inside the Docker container I get Temporary failure resolving 'gta-update.does-it.net' which is normal since /etc/resolv.conf contains this:

options ndots:0

But how should I change the DNS settings if there are no editors available inside Docker (like nano, etc...) ?

I tried with this on host side but it didn't help:

DOCKER_OPTS="--dns --dns"

the /etc/resolv.conf inside Docker is still the same (even after docker service restart)


At the end I had to modify default route to use different network and than I was able to go to Internet and use apt-get to install nano...
