Bodhi 5.0-32 bit - Can't install appPack / Why bash on eepdater?


I just tried to install "Bodhi 5.0-32 bit legacy" on my old 10''-netbook.

I know, I have to install the appPack manually, but what exactly is the name of this package, please?
I tried both app-pack and apppack after the sudo apt install command (I also tried sudo apt-get install), but the package cannot be found.


Then I tried to update Bodhi for the first time by means of the eepDater, but when I started the installation of all of the packages mentioned in the list, a bash window opened at the same time, which doesn't look nice. This window is obviously a terminal, but I wonder, why is it called "bash" in this case?
Why does this window open anyway, when eepDater is open already?
It just makes the "Details" button of eepDater obsolete.


And btw., clicking by tapping on the touchpad doesn't work either.
How can I fix this, please?

EDIT:
Also, I cannot install screenfetch (system information for the terminal) and lolcat (colour for the terminal)?
How can it be done, please?

eepdater had issues for years now. use terminal to update and dist-upgrade. sudo apt-get update and then sudo apt-get dist-upgrade. hit yes when asked

Looks like I really have to this, because eepDater got stuck at...

Trigger for menu (2.1.47ubuntu2.1) are being processed...


I guess, this process isn't supposed to take 3 hours without finishing.

Could you tell me the exact name of the appPack, please?
Probably, it cannot found, because there's something wrong in the way I named it.

this would be my guess about this question:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bash_%28Unix_shell%29

i don't believe synaptics works for all touchpads, but it did for mine. i installed it with
Code:
sudo apt install xserver-xorg-input-synaptics

Thank you, I will try next time, because currently I gave up on Bodhi 5 and switched to Xubuntu 18.05 LTS.
