This is an old thread, but exactly what I am researching... with an additional quesiton:
Synaptic wants to install 5 OpenOffice updates that total around 60MB. I used a friend's DSL (since I'm on dialup) to download these files from the Ubuntu repository server that Synaptic points to. It took a while to find the files, but I finally found them in the /pool directory. The files I downloaded are the same name & version numbers that Synaptic listed. I chose the ones that end with "..._all.deb", from the section for my processor type and Ubuntu version.
Now there's the question of how do I make Synaptic check them, so I can know the stuff I downloaded is correct and complete?
Thanks for any direction here...
Here are the actual files I downloaded on the other computer:
