According to the description shown in apt-cache show sqlite3-doc:

This package contains the documentation that is also available on the SQLite homepage.

And appropriately enough, apt-file show sqlite3-doc will tell you that the package contains whole lot of .html pages stored in /usr/share/doc/sqlite3-doc directory. Now, you can either read those via the browser, or alternatively, as explained in a related answer, you can install dwww package, open the browser and point to http://localhost/dwww. This requires enabling cgi via sudo a2enmod cgi and restarting apache service sudo systemctl restart apache2 (source).

  • Thanks this is what I was looking for since I wanted to know how to invoke it when I'm offline.

  • @Sruly Glad I could help. Since all .html files are located on your hard drive, they are in fact available off-line, either if you use dwww or xdg-open method, although dwww is a bit nicer for navigation Feb 11 '19 at 20:00

You can just point your web browser at the index page

xdg-open /usr/share/doc/sqlite3-doc/index.html

and navigate the documentation from there.
