    This is not an error message but a guess that you posted. I would suggest you copy the exact error message and post it. Then we may be able to help.
    Also the exact command you used.

    Default

    Ok. i typed this "apt -get update" and also tried apt -get install" but i got the same error message:
    apt command can be found in following packages
    "java jkd 5.0
    java jdk 6.0
    and 2 more options"
    at the end the error was bash:apt command not found

    error message:

    "#apt -get update (enter)
    The program 'apt' can be found in the following packages:
    * openjdk-6-jdk
    * cacao-oj6-jdk
    * sun-java5-jdk
    * sun-java6-jdk
    Try: apt-get install <selected package>
    bash: apt: command not found"


    "# apt -get install axel
    The program 'apt' can be found in the following packages:
