Hi, let me start with “you don’t need APT”, as far I know CentOS has ported apt in their repositories but RHEL family use yum as their package manager. APT is used by Debian-based distros. As for tar it is probably installed but you haven’t noticed, if you execute the command ‘yum install tar’ will install tar, in case it is not installed.
