In order to create docker containers in Amazon Web Services Elastic Beanstalk, you need the EB CLI command to run. I didn’t find the installation of this very straightforward forward so hopefully, this helps you.

Install python

sudo apt update 
sudo apt -y upgrade
sudo apt install wget build-essential libreadline-gplv2-dev libncursesw5-dev \ libssl-dev libsqlite3-dev tk-dev libgdbm-dev libc6-dev libbz2-dev libffi-dev zlib1g-dev
sudo apt -y install wget
tar xzf Python-3.9.1.tgz
python3.9 --version
sudo ln -s /usr/bin/python3.9 /usr/bin/python
python --version

Install pip

sudo apt-get -y install python3-pip

Install virtualenv

sudo pip install virtualenv
virtualenv --version

Install git

sudo apt-get -y install git

Create a folder and pull the eb command repo

sudo mkdir /eb-command
chown -R <ADDUSER>:<ADDUSER> /eb-command
cd eb-command
git clone

Run EB CLI install file

python ./aws-elastic-beanstalk-cli-setup/scripts/

A successful install will look like this image.png

Run the bash command provided above

Test EB CLI Command

eb --help

Successful will look like this
