I tried installing Docker using ubuntu 14.0LTS VirtualBox

sudo apt get install docker

However, when I try running docker it gives me the following error

The program 'docker' is currently not installed. You can install it by typing:

sudo apt-get install docker

Why is Ubuntu not seeing docker?

The command for installing docker in Ubuntu is

Sudo apt-get install docker.io

Where you are using sudo apt-get install docker so that is the reason why your ubuntu machine couldn’t recognize docker. Try the above command that will install docker on ubuntu.
