It worked on Friday but failed today.  I think the docker group didn't
stay with the user as redoing that caused it to work.

Now it worked and I got these final few lines after several pages:

Successfully built 1ce9375f8d34
Successfully tagged gnucashbuilder:ubuntu-18.04
WARNING: Image for service ubuntu-18.04 was built because it did not
already exist. To rebuild this image you must use `docker-compose build`
or `docker-compose up --build`.
Creating gnucashbuilder-ubuntu-18.04 ... done

So, now, how do I get inside that and build the *.deb files?
