This ^^ approach will not work for the long term. If you were to install Google Chrome on most platforms today, your version would be 101.xxx.xxx.xxx -- a version 97 chromedriver won't work with today's Chrome without having to re-determine the chromedriver version and update the Dockerfile accordingly.

Currently, I do this:

RUN apt-get update && \
    apt-get install -y gnupg wget curl unzip --no-install-recommends && \
    wget -q -O - https://dl-ssl.google.com/linux/linux_signing_key.pub | apt-key add - && \
    echo "deb http://dl.google.com/linux/chrome/deb/ stable main" >> /etc/apt/sources.list.d/google.list && \
    apt-get update -y && \
    apt-get install -y google-chrome-stable && \
    CHROME_VERSION=$(google-chrome --product-version | grep -o "[^\.]*\.[^\.]*\.[^\.]*") && \
    CHROMEDRIVER_VERSION=$(curl -s "https://chromedriver.storage.googleapis.com/LATEST_RELEASE_$CHROME_VERSION") && \
    wget -q --continue -P /chromedriver "http://chromedriver.storage.googleapis.com/$CHROMEDRIVER_VERSION/chromedriver_linux64.zip" && \
    unzip /chromedriver/chromedriver* -d /usr/local/bin/

It has worked consistently for several months over several Chrome updates.

Thank You @mnaumann-plenty, saved my day.

This is up to date version what worked for me with ruby container as it sets correct path with: /usr/local/bin/
Now in container chromedriver responds to: chromedriver -v
And updated it a bit https://gist.github.com/Faq/8821c5fd18dd01da4f80d7435158096d
