A note to the OP. Yet you might not be able to understand the syntax of
a man(ual)page, but you need to learn it.
Btw. you could use a search engine to do research in the Internet.
https://startpage.com/ Search term: apt-get manual > First hit:
Assumed you're using a GUI web-browser push
Search term: force
The first result is:
Force yes. This is a dangerous option that will cause apt-get to
continue without prompting if it is doing something potentially harmful.
It should not be used except in very special situations. Using
--force-yes can potentially destroy your system!
Configuration Item: APT::Get::force-yes."
Go back to the beginning of the website and use the search term: -f
The fourth result is:
Fix. Attempt to correct a system with broken dependencies in place."
For research to answer your question yourself, you neither need to
understand the syntax of a manpage, nor you need to read the whole text.
