The deb packages and tools around deb aren't suitable for really big programs because preinst scripts aren't easy to get separately.

The deb packages and tools around deb can't check hardware requirements.

For example, the levels of OpenGL or Vulkan are unknown to them. For example they cannot resolve packages based on CPU flags..

Some workaround are possible with preinst. Read this answer for some details: https://unix.stackexchange.com/a/306013/391534.

Read this chapter about preinst: https://www.debian.org/doc/manuals/debian-reference/ch02.en.html

This is not an application which should be listed here. Advanced Package Tool is a core utility of Debian. The front-end user interface application for Advanced Package Tool is aptitude which has a separate listing.
