Does Amazon Linux AMI comes and use apt or yum command?

I am looking into Amazon Linux AMI to set up a tiny Python app. Quick question, does Amazon Linux use apt or yum to install and upgrade packages?a

Amazon Linux uses the yum command for package management to add, erase and upgrade packages. Amazon Linux is based upon Fedora Linux, so all those commands work on Amazon Linux AMI running on EC2 or Lightsail AWS server. Check out our guides for more:
