I read the documentation of wget but did not understand how to download the package.Is there any way (command) to download the package using the terminal on Ubuntu inside a Docker container?

    There is nothing to "download" ... wget is already installed ... it is included in all Ubuntu systems. :) – cl-netbox Feb 15 '17 at 16:31
  • Did you try using it? – George Udosen Feb 15 '17 at 16:32
  • No it isn't there(/usr/bin) in my ubuntu system. – Boyka Feb 15 '17 at 16:37

    This is relevant to docker – Isaac Oct 15 '17 at 22:32

    Highly relevant to Docker; agreed with Isaac. wget is not installed in ubuntu:latest. Voting to reopen (or I would if I had enough reputation). – Dan Nissenbaum Nov 4 '17 at 9:40

Please just run this from the terminal if its not there for some reason:

sudo apt install wget


sudo apt-get install wget
