$ apt show gdebi
Description: simple tool to view and install deb files - GNOME GUI
 gdebi lets you install local deb packages resolving and installing
 its dependencies. apt does the same, but only for remote (http, ftp)
 located packages.
The package is also scanned via lintian before the install and its
 possible to inspect the control and data members of the packages.
This package contains the graphical user interface.
