== How to use? ==
See [[DebianPackageManagement]] section.

APT resolves dependency problems and retrieves requested packages from designated [[DebianRepository|package repositories]]. APT delegates the actual installation and removal of packages to [[dpkg]]. APT is primarily used by [[WikiPedia:Command-line interface|commandline]] tools, but

 * there are many [[WikiPedia:GUI|GUI]] tools to let you use APT without having to touch the command line.
 * tools like [[aptitude]] can interact with APT via both command line and [[WikiPedia:Text-based user interface|TUI]] interfaces.

== Further Reading ==

=== Tools ===

 * [[AptCLI]] - basics of using APT on the commandline
 * [[apt-get]] - probably the most widely-used APT commandline tool
 * [[aptitude]] - a tool that can (among other things) drive APT from commandline or TUI
 * [[Synaptic]] - a graphical APT package manager

=== Configuration ===


 * [[AptPreferences]] - details where and when to retrieve packages
 * [[AptConf]] - even more detailed APT configuration


=== Other ===

 * [[https://www.debian.org/Bugs/|Bugs]] - information on finding, reporting and fixing bugs in Debian packages
 * [[http://www.debian.org/doc/manuals/apt-howto|APT HOWTO (obsolete)]]
## The APT-HOWTO is already considered outdated by the author himself and even the package for it has been removed. The links to the HOWTO have been removed from the doc section of Debian website although the HOWTO can be reached via a direct link like in this case. See bugs #493787 and #441887
 * [[WikiPedia:APT_(Package_Manager)|Advanced Package Tool (or APT)]], the main command-line [[PackageManagement|package manager]] for Debian and its derivatives. It provides command-line [[PackageManagementTools|tools]] for searching, [[PackageManagement|managing]] and querying information about packages, as well as low-level access to all features provided by the libapt-pkg and libapt-inst libraries which higher-level package managers can depend upon.
 * The [[DebianPkg:apt]] package, providing, among others, the [[AptCLI|apt]] management tool, a high-level command-line interface for better interactive usage.
