Bug Description

apt is the new tool. We should mention that one instead of apt-get.

Soon, apt and snap will be best friends forever.


 * For users of snapcraft, none. This will just affect people cloning snapcraft from github.

 * The docs to invite new contributors should be the best possible.

[Test Case]

 * N/A

[Regression Potential]
