'dselect'. However, from the 'dselect' manpage:
The dselect package selection interface is confusing to some new
users. Reportedly, it even makes seasoned kernel developers cry.
The documentation is lacking.
There is no help option in the main menu.
The visible list of available packages cannot be reduced.
The built in access methods can no longer stand up to current quality
standards. Use the access method provided by apt, it is not only not
broken, it is also much more flexible than the built in access
