can anyone tell me how to install Bitdefender antivirus from terminal if it's possible ? I am using Ubuntu 16.04

sudo apt-add-repository "deb http://download.bitdefender.com/repos/deb/ bitdefender non-free"
Next, get and add the repository key
wget http://download.bitdefender.com/repos/deb/bd.key.asc sudo apt-key add bd.key.asc
sudo apt-get update
Finally install by doing
sudo apt-get install bitdefender-scanner-gui
Once BitDefender is installed you can launch it with the following command:

Package: bitdefender-scanner-gui Filename: pool/non-free/b/bitdefender-scanner-gui/bitdefender-scanner-gui_1.0-3_amd64.deb
See also Depends section, which would contain e.g.:
Download and install (with GDebi):
Once the Bitdefender is installed you can launch it with the following command:
