I created a local repository and I used it in my ubuntu clients.

This repository contains only some packages.
Now I would upgrade these packages.

How can I do it, as there are many packages and update them all manually is very difficult?

Have you got some suggestions to give me?

Do you mean updating the Ubuntu clients using your repository, or, updating the packages itself in the repository? If the latter is the case, then just re-create the repository as you have done in the first place, now using the updated packages. Also, please share how you created your local repository. – gertvdijk Sep 12 '12 at 21:16
