Took me a while to parse that :)

You mean you want apt behaving in a "monochrome" way, i.e. foreground,
background and that's it?

Perhaps setting the TERM variable helps? Like, for example

  TERM=xterm-mono apt

(make sure there is a xterm-mono, typically in /lib/terminfo/x, and
that it is compatible with whatever terminal (emulator?) you are using)
