comment What is the equivalent to the Windows “Program Files” folder? (Where do things go when I install them?)
See askubuntu.com/a/294492/41499 for what the /opt directory is for.

comment How to take control over update action?
apt-get upgrade will give you a list of packages to be upgraded, and then asks Do you want to continue [Y/n]?. Typing n will not install anything but you still got your list. See the linked questions on how to prevent specific packages from being upgraded.

ctrl+A is from the emacs bindings, you can also use the vi bindings (set -o vi). Then you can Escape (go to command mode), and then 'I' (capital 'i', insert at beginning of line).
