For example I find the package compiled binary on https://packages.ubuntu.com/xenial/arm64/libpython2.7/download.

How do I actually download the deb file?

I do see the warnings, I can not use apt-get because I need the binary for cross compiling on a stripped down Linux with no apt-get. I need the aarch64 binary.

Update: I did find the package separately on Debian's website https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/python2.7/2.7.11-7ubuntu1/+build/9589511. But is there a way to download from the Ubuntu Package page? I like the search system better.

For ARM packages, take the path given there (pool/main/p/python2.7/ in this case), and append it to http://ports.ubuntu.com, and pick the version you want from the directory listing on that page:

Also, Launchpad isn't Debian's site. It's Ubuntu's. That package is Ubuntu's.
