man apt-get:
           install is followed by one or more packages desired for
installation or upgrading. Each package is a
           package name, not a fully qualified filename (for instance,
in a Debian system, apt-utils would be
           the argument provided, not apt-utils_1.0.3_amd64.deb). All
packages required by the package(s)
           specified for installation will also be retrieved and
installed. The /etc/apt/sources.list file is
           used to locate the desired packages. If a hyphen is
appended to the package name (with no
           intervening space), the identified package will be removed
if it is installed. Similarly a plus sign
           can be used to designate a package to install. These latter
features may be used to override
           decisions made by apt-get's conflict resolution system.
