This question already has an answer here:
I thought when I executed
apt install pkg, a deb file would be downloaded and put into
/var/cache/apt/archives. But today after executing
apt install python2.7 python-pip, I can't find any deb file in
var/cache/apt/archives. I don't know why. Is it because I write
sudo apt install pkg into a bash script and didn't execute the script with
For some reason, I need to be able to install some package from deb files, meaning that I should be able to execute
dpkg -i pkg.deb, instead of
apt install pkg to do the installation.
I've tried the command
apt download pkg and it did download a deb file but it is a tiny file. When I execute
dpkg -i pkg.deb, there are many errors about dependencies and I have to execute
apt install -f to solve them.
My system has a working internet connection. How can I get a complete .deb package?
