I've been trying to remove UN-necessary packages on Elementary OS using Synaptic. after finished I can't use the apt in any command like apt-get I always get this error

apt-get: command not found

Can't even use recovery after restarting the PC. Any way to fix this but installing OS again?

    Download appropriate debs manually and install with dpkg – ivanivan Mar 4 '18 at 15:16

    update and upgrade are part of apt-get which you say is missing. Use dpkg like ivanivan suggests. – dsstorefile1 Mar 4 '18 at 15:36
