Uninstall docker and rerun docker on ubuntu 16.04

If you copy paste the following lines into the terminal of your ubuntu, it will automatically uninstall docker and reinstall it for you. This is clean sweep of your docker setting files. This is very handy when docker has gone beserk and you want to clean it up.

sudo service docker stop && sudo apt-get purge -y docker-engine && sudo apt-get autoremove — purge -y docker-engine && sudo rm -rf /var/lib/docker && sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install -y docker-engine && sudo service docker start && sudo docker run hello-world && sudo usermod -aG docker $USER
