The --help as well as the man page of apt are very weak. Quasi
everything supported by apt-get works for apt, too and some other
commands, could be partial replaced by apt.

Scripts still could require usage of apt-get and other commands, apt
warns that it's risky to use it for a script [1].

For experienced users apt still is not a replacement for everything,
but we should use it as much as possible, to get used to it, because if
we help beginners, apt is easier to remember for them.
