Just installed Debian and looking for ways to list all available packages using apt. After some search, i found that you can use apt-cache to list all available packages in debian.
To list all available packages from apt, follow the steps below:-
# this will list all packages available thru apt-get
$ apt-cache pkgnames
# this will only return you the relevant result
$ apt-cache search 'your search term here'
# this only return result match `postgresql-8*`
$ apt-cache search 'postgresql-8'
