  • As far as I know not, this would lead to unmet dependencies. – Michael K Jan 10 '12 at 8:20
  • why? which dependencies would be unmet? – kernel_panic Jan 10 '12 at 8:22
  • Imagine you issue a remove and an install command at the same time.And however,the most time-consuming operation is usually the download.Paralelization will not bring any effort on that as the internet bandwidth is usually a bottleneck.Finally both software installations could make changes to the same configuration files at the same time.Its just not worth it on my opinion.Compiling and installing packages from source, however, would work in parallel ;-) – Michael K Jan 10 '12 at 8:26

If I understand your question correctly you want to install more than one package at once. I suggest you use "synaptic package manager". At the command prompt,

1. sudo apt-get install synaptic

2. sudo synaptic

3. in synaptic, you can choose whatever packages you want to install. All packages will be installed afterwards.
