apt-cache show = show package information
dpkg -l = show installed packages
dpkg -L = show package contents
dpkg -S = search packages for file
apt-get install = install package (old)
apt-get remove = uninstall package, leave configuration on disk (old)
apt-get purge = uninstall package, delete configs (old)

apt search = (new)
apt install = (new)
