means it's not installed. and you need to post what box you have it on and etc. this usually occurs when not using ubuntu or debian and/or attempting to install on windows wsl

If you do have docker installed, the daemon might not be running.
Check with systemctl status docker

It might be your box. Test using a local vm or http://hetzner.cloud - You need to do for a sanity check (most of the times, it's a box) and you said it's a seedbox. Do you have root access?

i have just had another reply (I'm not sure if docker will work on our system, you may need to install the software directly inside the Ubuntu VNC app instead. )

Did you ever get this sorted? I just signed up with seedboxco.net since they offered "root" but, apparently not quite.

i have the same issue.

Cannot connect to the Docker daemon at unix:///var/run/docker.sock. Is the docker daemon running?

i already reinstalled pgblitz and docker.

checking systemctl docker says "Unit docker.service could not be found."

any ideas?
