Why is the manual of apt incomplete?
I would like to see what are the command-line switches of
apt list but after 30min of research I don’t manage to find a lot of information about it…
I tried to type
apt list --help,
man apt and
man apt-get but didn’t get much information especially about what I search. I would even say the documentation of
apt is very short for a program this important on Linux.
Anyone knows where I can get more information about
apt commands ?
I’m pretty sure there is a command which is something like this :
apt list --installed. But I don’t even manage to find it in the documentation… It’s very puzzling.
list list is somewhat similar to dpkg-query --list in that it can display a list of packages satisfying certain criteria. It supports glob(7) patterns for matching package names as well as options to list installed (--installed), upgradeable (--upgradeable) or all available (--all-versions) versions.
Seems to cover the basics.
