I have seen that kubernetes is using, Docker version 17.03.2-ce, build f5ec1e2.
Where as the I want to have docker version, Docker version 18.09.0, build 4d60db4
The error “* Fix error “unexpected EOF” when adding an 8GB file moby/moby#37771” has been resolved in the latter version of docker.
Is there any way i can manually upgrade the version?
Sure, different tools for installation are more flexible than others and let you choose this. If not, you can probably do it manually.
It really depends on how you installed k8s in the first place.
And make sure z to avoid problems, that the kubernetes version you are using is validated with that docker version (for 1.13 it is on the release notes, for example)
