I'm not sure why you'd want to, but

software-center

should do it. If you want to use command line to install a package then the correct way to do it would be

sudo apt-get install package-name

or

sudo apt-get remove package-name

to remove it. If you want a text based package manager then you could have a look at aptitude:

sudo aptitude

You simply enter the terminal (Ctrl+Alt+T) and write:

software-center

and press Enter.
