APT is a package management system, that can be used with both RPM and dpkg to coordinate sets of packages from multiple repositories. APT understands package versions and dependencies.

The APT package management system is distinguished by excellent support for dependency management and tracking. This means that APT will try to resolve dependencies, searching for the needed packages amongst all of the repositories it has been told about.

APT is used on Ubuntu and other Debian derivative distributions, as well as in some RPM based distributions.
