This doesn't look like either 18.10's or 19.04's version of apt.  Do you
perhaps have some kind of wrapper or local build or something?  What do
the following commands say?

  sudo which apt
  dpkg -S "$(sudo which apt)"
  dpkg-query -W apt

(Yes, I do mean "sudo which" rather than just "which", even though
that's not normally necessary - I want to see the path lookup result
under sudo.)
