It looks like you have installed the wrong docker..

apt-get install docker will a install a "System tray for KDE3/GNOME2 docklet applications"

Installing lxc-docker will get you the package to "create lightweight, portable, self-sufficient containers from any application."

I would like to note that lxc-docker has been renamed in the repositories by

I would like to point out that:
$ sudo apt-get install
$ sudo ln -sf /usr/bin/ /usr/local/bin/docker
we must install rather than docker.

I had the same issue "Segmentation Fault or Critical Error encountered. Dumping core and aborting." following these instructions (as root) :

However @xianlinbox 's solution does not work on my machine* :

$ sudo apt-get install
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
E: Unable to locate package
E: Couldn't find any package by regex ''

(* My machine is a Linode server running Ubuntu 12.04 - it is an old Ubuntu, and it is also a custom distro I believe - I've decided the easiest solution for me will be to find a different host)
