Google and man pages for apt, apt-config and apt.conf have gotten me nowhere in over an hour of searching how to keep apt output limited to the two screen colors in which it is running. Something likeApt::what-goes "here"; ought to do it in some file in /etc/apt/apt.conf.d/, but by what filename, and what are the magic strings? Google doesn't seem to want to show anything other than enabling, which is the apparent default that I want eradicated.
Try "APT::Color "false";". If you want to change the colours, there are sub-options for "APT::Color:Blue", Cyan, Green, Magenta, Red, White, Yellow, "Neutral" and "Hightlight". Each of these takes an ANSI escape code (such as "[34m").
