'apt' (/usr/bin/apt) on my system is merely a symbolic link to 'aptitude' (/usr/bin/aptitude) which is provided by the 
'zypper-aptitude' package which supposedly provides compatibility to Debian's aptitude command using zypper. In other words, all 
it does is allow one to use 'apt' commands on the front-end while running zypper on the back-end.

Executing `apt` on the command line invokes zypper. Executing `aptitude` on the command line invokes the YaST2 software 
management GUI.

The real 'apt' is not available in any of the official, or even community, openSUSE Leap repos.
