Enable APT Progress Bar

You can enable a progress bar to show your progress when performing updates by running the command below:

echo 'Dpkg::Progress-Fancy "1";' | \
sudo tee /etc/apt/apt.conf.d/99progressbar

This will only show a progress bar for installation, not for the progress of downloads.
