  • No, it is the same thing. – Mark Kirby Sep 5 '17 at 12:10
  • no, apt-get is just simply reduced to apt in 16.04 – luv.preet Sep 5 '17 at 12:11

    @luv.preet In terms of typing apt is reduced because it saves typing 4 characters, but in terms of functionality apt is increased because it has additional features that apt-get doesn't have. – karel Sep 5 '17 at 12:16

apt and apt-get use the same repository configurations.

So apt update and and apt-get update will do the same with the same repository
