    I want to learn about aptitude program.

    What are best places to learn about it? Does anyone have advice and/or examples they could post here?

    Why is aptitude preferred by some people over apt-get?

    What are the advantages of aptitude? The disadvantages of it?

    I already installed it using this in terminal:

    sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install aptitude

    That worked to install it, except it complained of this:

    E: Some index files failed to download. They have been ignored, or old ones used instead.

    Is my install still good and useable?

    If so, how can I begin learning about aptitude? Advice and examples would be appreciated.

    What are its advantages and disadvantages compared to apt-get ?

    Who makes aptitude?
