From http://askubuntu.com/a/445638/14551. Enable bash-completion for the apt command in Ubuntu 14.04. save to /usr/share/bash-completion/completions/apt, then run "source ~/.bashrc" to load the completion (takes a while till the bash-completion works!).
# Debian apt(8) completion -*- shell-script -*-
_apt()
{
local cur prev words cword

for (( i=0; i < ${#words[@]}-1; i++ )); do
if [[ ${words[i]} == @(list|search|show|update|install|remove|upgrade|full-upgrade|edit-sources|dist-upgrade|purge) ]]; then
special=${words[i]}

done

  • Enable bash-completion for the apt command

sudo wget https://gist.githubusercontent.com/paalfe/11352553/raw/apt -O /usr/share/bash-completion/completions/apt
source ~/.bashrc # Loads the completion, takes a while till the bash-completion works!

  • Enable Progress Fancy in the apt command. Progress Fancy is a small bar at the bottom of the screen that indicates the percentage of completion.

echo -e 'Dpkg::Progress-Fancy "1";' | sudo tee /etc/apt/apt.conf.d/99progressbar
