After switching from 18.04 to 20.04, I noticed that the asterisk thing doesn't work.

For example: If I want to remove all nvidia packages, I type in sudo apt remove *nvidia* and apt removes any package that contains the string nvidia. But when I try to do it in 20.04, it doesn't work. Apt says package not found. What could be the problem here?


Now you can type :

sudo apt-get remove nvidia*
  • Thanks! I rarely use apt-get so I didn't know. – Wolfdale A3 Jun 2 '20 at 8:17
