I am running i386 (32-bit) natty, and have installed crash, but it doesn't work on the running system. I found the solution on the crash author's page -- the problem was fixed in 5.1.6 and I have 5.0.7 -- but I can't find a way to upgrade crash to 5.1.6 using either synaptic or apt-get.
The machine in question does not have Internet access, so I've downloaded crash_5.1.6-1ubuntu1_i386.deb onto a flash drive (using a different machine) and mounted it on the machine where I need the upgrade. However, when I try to install it, apt-get claims that it can't find the package. (I've tried many variations on this, and also tried using synaptic; and yes, I'm aware that the "-s" will keep it from actually doing anything -- I want to be sure of what-all it will do before letting it do it -- but shouldn't it still find the file?)

As shown by the "ll" output, the file does exist. How do I get apt-get to see it?
