Debian Software

I want to install some software that is not in the Deepin store. Can I install software from the Debian repository and if I can, how do I do it. Thank you in advance of your help.

please give more details

If you're trying to install a binary you can download the file and open it with packager manager.
If you're trying to install from source then you download the source code, install g++ and then compile the source.
What kind of software are you installing and from where are you getting it?

It's generally a bad idea to mix binary packages from different distros, even if they use the same package manager. There are likely to be built-in dependencies on different library versions from the ones your distro uses and this can break your system.

If you really need something that is not in your distro's repository, it is better to find source code and build it locally.

I found the answer I was looking for. From the community store, you can install the Synaptic Package Manager and get the Debian software there. Thanks for all the answers.
