Update Component Pack Prerequisites

Currently the prerequisites for installing Component Pack include outdated versions of Docker, Kubernetes and Helm. For Kubernetes 1.11 there is not even an official documentation available anymore.

So please include support for current versions and keep them up to date.

E.g. support n-2 versions of Kubernetes.

    Please  improve the product and upgrade the Kubernetes version with each Component Pack release.
    Please also look to support as many platforms as possible.

    Please open the support statement to a CNCF certified Kubernetes! It makes no sense to just support Docker as Container runtime, kubeadm, Red Hat!



    Customers want to buy SLA or support for Kubernetes and not deploying with kubeadm. We don't want to deploy Red Hat and on top Kubernetes. There is Core OS as example to get a tiny operating system to startup Kubernetes.


    CNCF releases a version per quarter, so 1.17 for CR1 is still supported, but not the newest option. It's not Websphere, where we deploy 8.5.5 even when 9.0 is available since years.

    We have an upgrade of Kubernetes to 1.17 on our roadmap for 6.5 CR1. We're also looking at similar upgrades for Docker, Centos and Alpine.
