how to install APT 1.0.4 on Ubuntu, Linux Mint, Pinguy OS, Elementary OS, LXLE, Debian, Crunchbang

In this article I will show you how to install APT 1.0.4 on Ubuntu, Linux Mint, Pinguy OS, Elementary OS, LXLE, Debian, Crunchbang and other Ubuntu/Debian derivative systems.

Because it is not available via any repository or ppa, we have to download the apt deb package from the debian ftp and install it via command-line. I prefer gdebi over dpkg, due to the fact that it also handles dependencies.

How to install APT 1.0.4 on 32 bit Ubuntu, Linux Mint, Pinguy OS, Elementary OS, LXLE, Debian, Crunchbang and derivatives:

$ sudo apt-get install gdebi
$ wget ftp.debian.org/debian/pool/main/a/apt/apt_1.0.4_i386.deb
$ sudo gdebi apt_1.0.4_i386.deb

How to install APT 1.0.4 on 64 bit Ubuntu, Linux Mint, Pinguy OS, Elementary OS, LXLE, Debian, Crunchbang and derivatives:

$ sudo apt-get install gdebi
$ wget ftp.debian.org/debian/pool/main/a/apt/apt_1.0.4_amd64.deb
$ sudo gdebi apt_1.0.4_amd64.deb
