What is Linux apt Command?
|list||list is used to display a list of packages. It supports shell pattern for matching package names and the following options: --installed, --upgradable, --all-versions are supported.|
|search||search searches for the given term(s) and display matching packages.|
|show||show shows the package information for the given package(s).|
|install||install is followed by one or more package names desired for
installation or upgrading.
A specific version of a package can be selected for installation by following the package name with an equals and the version of the package to select. This will cause that version to be located and selected for install. Alternatively a specific distribution can be selected by following the package name with a slash and the version of the distribution or the Archive name (stable, testing, unstable).
|remove||remove is identical to install except that packages are removed instead of installed. Note that removing a package leaves its configuration files on the system. If a plus sign is appended to the package name (with no intervening space), the identified package will be installed instead of removed.|
|edit-resources||edit-sources lets you edit your sources.list file and provides basic sanity checks.|
|update||update is used to resynchronize the package index files from their sources.|
|upgrade||upgrade is used to install the newest versions of all packages currently installed on the system from the sources enumerated in /etc/apt/sources.list. New package will be installed, but existing package will never removed.|
|full-upgrade||full-upgrade performs the function of upgrade but may also remove installed packages if that is required in order to resolve a package conflict.|
|-h, --help||Show a short usage summary.|
|-v, --version||Show the program version.|
|-c, --config-file||Configuration File; Specify a configuration file to use. The program will read the default configuration file and then this configuration file.

|-o, --option||Set a Configuration Option; This will set an arbitrary configuration option. The syntax is -o Foo::Bar=bar. -o and --option can be used multiple times to set different options.|
