How to use apt-get from the command line.
Can you share .ogg / .ogv file of this video, please?
In some cases, first you have to export your proxy with the next command
and now you can upgrade, update or install your packages.
About APT o Aptitude, when you're trying to install some packages and APT can`t find, Aptitude recommend you a similar package you're trying to install.
How about a yum tutorial for those of us in an rhn world?
It's on my list, along with YAST (which I've actually never used either!) Stay tuned!

apt-get, apt-cache and friends are the old tools. You should be using aptitude instead.
aptitude search x
aptitude install x
With aptitude you only need to remember one command and it does a better job of tracking dependencies for later uninstall:
aptitude remove x
aptitude (while often touted as the preferred method) is a great tool, no doubt. And while aptitude can be configured to automatically install suggested and recommended packages, I don't think it does a better job of tracking orphaned dependencies anymore. (I could be wrong, but I think the autoremove option will get rid of orphans now)
I prefer apt-get, largely out of familiarity. I don't think one is better than the other, and APT is such a great package management system, it's hard to go wrong no matter which front end you use!
aptitude may be nice, but if you are using APT-RPM on a Red Hat box or Fink on MacOS X, aptitude is not available.
apt-get is available on systems using either APT-RPM or Fink and works beautifully.
