Hello, I am just getting started with this tool and it appears that nextflow is not interacting w/ docker

I tried working from https://github.com/nextflow-io/examples and running

nextflow run fasta_record.nf

Which is the first example that really needs a docker image fails.

the failure is the blastp package, that is not installed on the host.

nextflow appears to just ignore the docker commands, whether I add the container to a process, the config file or --with-docker
It doesn't throw an error or anything when I give it a bad docker image name.

-with-docker not --with-docker

Is there an equally silly reason why it is not recognizing nextflow.config?

nextflow.config must be located in the launch directory

and
In the latter case the examples below marked with a * character need to be run adding the -with-docker command line option.
from the tutorial
sorry

If I try to create an aws cloud using nextflow, do I need to use an ami with slurm or sge already set up and configured or does nextflow manage that?

NF has it's own clustering engine, it doesn't require slurm or sge
