That doesn't seem to be how you're supposed to do it.
Create the graph (with no package given all packages in the cache are
apt-cache dotty apache2 > apache-dependency-graph.dot
Visualize the graph:
dot -Tpng apache-dependency-grap.dot
But there's still too much stuff in there maybe to be legible. DW
suggests a restriction of the graph to only the packages given on the
apt-cache -o APT::Cache::GivenOnly=1 dotty apache2 apache2-common (etc.).
