Some info on apt

apt-get install food

apt is a very cool and easy to use package manager for UNIX based systems. Here are some simple and effective commands that might help you do things XD

apt-get update - makes sure that all the information is newest.

apt-get upgrade - checks for all packages that needs to be updated.

apt-get remove <package> - Removes the package from the system.

apt-get purge <package> - Same as remove but deletes all the configuration files.

apt-cache search - This can be useful if you don’t know the package name, e.g “apt-cache search “stats” | more

apt-cache depends <package> - Lists all the packages dependences.

apt-get -u install <package> - Updates just the specified package.
