I have just installed Kali Linux 2018.2 and tried to search some installed packages on it as i do on Ubuntu
aptitude search *package name*
but it seems like this command does not work on Kali Linux.
I have also tried to install Aptitude
/bin/sh -c 'apt-get install -y aptitude'
but with no success :
E: Package 'aptitude' has no installation candidate
if Aptitude does not exist on Kali Linux, is there any other alternatives to search the installed packages and the packages that the Kali Linux repositories have?
