Finding out which packages are installed on your Ubuntu system

If you’d like to have a listing of all the packages installed on your ubuntu system, but you are unable to use the update manager. Then revert to the old-skool debian way:

dpkg --get-selections | grep -v deinstall


kvaes@ubuntu # dpkg –get-selections | grep -v deinstall
adduser install
alsa-base install
alsa-utils install
apache-common install
apache2 install
apache2-doc install
apache2-mpm-worker install
apache2-prefork-dev install
apache2-utils install
apache2.2-common install
apt install
apt-utils install
