Now if you just want to do a simple uninstall just type in this command;

$ sudo apt-get purge docker-ce

For a complete uninstall of Docker follow the below steps:

Step 1:This command will tell you all the docker related packages you have installed:

$ dpkg -l | grep -i docker

Step 2: The below commands remove everything but containers,images,volumes, user configurations.

$ sudo apt-get purge -y docker-engine docker docker-ce  
$ sudo apt-get autoremove -y --purge docker-engine docker docker-ce  

Step 3: Run these commands to remove all containers,images,volumes, user configurations.

$ sudo rm -rf /var/lib/docker /etc/docker
$ sudo rm /etc/apparmor.d/docker
$ sudo groupdel docker
$ sudo rm -rf /var/run/docker.sock

That should have removed everything related to docker.

Hope this helped :)
