Can Apper and Muon be used to install and update in 23.04?

br flag

I can still use Apper in Kubuntu 23.04 to install stuff, not only because I like its interface, which is both clear and detailed (while that of Discover is neither), but also when I want to install the standard deb and not a snap program. At least that's what I think.

Is it otherwise?

I see that Discover works well now and has options to select between snap, deb or flatpak, and I do use it to update the system, but these alternative are still available.

For example, Muon (as alternative to Synaptic) is the only clear solution I know to lock a program to a certain version. Like Apper, it can be used to install, uninstall and update. But I expect some overall limitation, including snaps, for example.

What are the limitations of these programs these days in Ubuntu/Kubuntu?

I have noticed that Apper must be run with a modified command in order to get in Kubuntu the administration rights a software manager needs:

Most people don’t grasp that asking a lot of questions unlocks learning and improves interpersonal bonding. In Alison’s studies, for example, though people could accurately recall how many questions had been asked in their conversations, they didn’t intuit the link between questions and liking. Across four studies, in which participants were engaged in conversations themselves or read transcripts of others’ conversations, people tended not to realize that question asking would influence—or had influenced—the level of amity between the conversationalists.
