“sdkmanager: command not found” after installing Android SDK

I installed via apt-get install android-sdk.

However, doing a find / -name sdkmanager reveals there is no such binary anywhere on the system.

On my Mac, the binary exists in $ANDROID_HOME/tools/bin.

However, on the Ubuntu system (the system with the issue), the binary does not exist there:

$ ls $ANDROID_HOME/tools/bin
e2fsck
fsck.ext4
mkfs.ext4
resize2fs
screenshot2
tune2fs

Where is the sdkmanager?

Edit:

Not sure why the above didn’t install sdkmanager, however, one solution I found was to install manually (instead of via apt-get) by downloading the Linux files at https://developer.android.com/studio/#downloads under the “Command line tools only” header.
