Wikipedia has an article on:
A package management system is a collection of tools to automate the process of installing, upgrading, configuring, and removing software packages from a computer. In such a system, software is distributed in packages, usually encapsulated into a single file. As well as the software itself, packages often include other important information, such as the full name, a description of its purpose, the version number, vendor of the software, checksum information, and a list of other packages, known as dependencies, that are required for the software to run properly. This meta-information is typically entered into a local package database. [1]
