Hello Linux Geeksters. As you may know, APT (Advanced Package Tool) has been updated yet again, reaching version 1.0.1. While APT 1.0 brought the following new features: apt list, apt search, apt show, apt update, apt install, apt remove, apt full-upgrade, app edit-sources, APT 1.0.1 brings both fixes and changes.
Among others the apt list error has been removed, apt search has been made case-insensitive and a number of bugs have been squashed. For more information, read the mailing lists.
In this article I will show you how to install APT 1.0.1 on Ubuntu 14.04 Trusty Tahr, Ubuntu 12.04 Precise Pangolin, Linux Mint 17 Qiana, Linux Mint 13 Maya and Elementary OS 0.2 Luna.
Because it is available via PPA, installing APT 1.0.1 on Ubuntu 14.04, Ubuntu 12.04, Linux Mint 17 and Linux Mint 13 Maya is easy. All you have to do is add the ppa to your system, update the local repository index and install the apt package. Like this:
$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:mvo/apt-src-ftparchive
$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get install apt
