When you wish to install a debian package (*.deb) directly, you use dpkg
rather than 'apt-get install". The '-i' means install. So in this case
you are telling dpkg to install avast4workstation_1.0.8-2.deb. If you
open a terminal window and enter:

man dpkg

you will find information on the different options dpkg uses.

Also have a look at:
