My /var/cache/apt/archives directory seems to have nearly a gig of .deb files. I notice there is more than one version of each (it looks like its always 2).Is there a command to shrink it?
'apt-get autoclean' will get rid of the duplicate ones[or more precisely all debs that don't correspond to the candidate version of a package]. 'apt-get clean' will get rid of the entire directory.
