    The Linux Mint command ‘apt’ is completely different from the one Debian uses — written by different people at different time. The older Mint version has recently been made to mimic the newer Debian version, but it has many more functions unique to it, like ‘version’ and ‘check’. I’d imagine Ubuntu uses the Debian one but I don’t know for certain.

    Try to check the manual entry for apt, some options may not be given in the help info or pages.

    i tried to use two of the options in this tutorial and i get the following errors

    apt content glances
    E: Invalid operation content

    apt deb google-chrome-stable_current_amd64.deb
    E: Invalid operation deb

      It should work just fine, try to run apt get without any options, you should see all the options available that you can use including content and deb.

      If it still does not work, try installing it:

      sudo apt-get install apt
