    'apt-get update' or 'apt update,' that is the question?

    Both should work just fine in any latest ubuntu server terminal but the former is preferred in a bash script.

    Isn't the whole Debian distro trying to drop apt-get in favor of just apt?

    I gotta admit, habit has me always running apt-get!!
