If CTRL+C doesn't work, and if clicking the "X" on the installer window doesn't work, then open a new terminal with CTRL+ALT+T, and run top to find the PID of the installer process. Then CTRL+C to quit top. Then...
Code:
sudo kill <PID>


If that fails, or if you can't figure out which PID, then...
Code:
sudo reboot


Aborting an installation may leave a mess. Some suggestions for cleaning up are here and here.

That's cool that you use Docker.... :) When you say "we" and "our", are you part of a business or non-profit, or some other organization? :) 'Cuz if it's more than one person (you), you'll need to be careful for SURE not to kill installations partway through... I'd say let it finish, and then simply remove it. :) Stan's got a good point too. :)

If you're going to run containers, use podman instead of docker because it's more secure.

Why is Podman more secure than Docker? :) I never used either, but I get the basic concept of the Technology....

Podman is a little more secure, but docker is phasing out. Podman is the future.
Podman is daemonless, less overhead.
Podman has native built-in systemd support.

For the most part, most podman commands are backwards compatible with docker.
Also Podman has more OVF (open virtualization format) compatibility than docker.

I think it was memory issue on the container. the action did get interrupted the second time ran the openssh install command on pressing ctrl +c. so my query got resolved.

If you have access to the docker user/group you will be able to become root on the system, with podman you can run containers as normal users and allows you to run rootless containers.
