why did you have me using sudo aptitude, rather than sudo apt-???
Some use aptitude, some people use apt-get.
Take a look at
http://www.psychocats.net/ubuntu/aptitude

An other option is to use synaptic, the GUI packetmanager.

I think there are about a zillion threads explaining the advantages of aptitude over apt-get in Debian based systems including threads on LinuxQuestions. About 10 seconds of googling
Code:
apt-get aptitude
will get you all the info you like.
Cheers,
