Answer: 1

When using wget, -c is used to keep wget retrying to download, usually in the event of an internet interruption. What equivalent of -c can we use for apt-get to keep on retrying even in the case of unstable internet connection which keeps on getting disconnected?

From man apt.conf

Retries Number of retries to perform. If this is non-zero APT will retry failed files the given number of times.

echo 'Acquire::Retries "3";' > /etc/apt/apt.conf.d/80-retries

Since apt 2.3.2, the default is 3.
