Yes: rm /var/cache/apt/archives/*

You usually update packages only, or install it once. You won't harm your
system if you remove the old packages. If it is needed, the packages will
be downloaded again.


  NT is the OS of the future. The main engine is the 16-bit Subsystem
  (also called MS-DOS Subsystem). Above that, there is the windoze 95/98
  16-bit Subsystem. Anyone can see that 16+16=32, so windoze NT is a
  *real* 32-bit system.
