logs for downloaded files

Hi everyone, sorry if my english is not very good.
When I downlod something with "sudo apt-get install ..." in Ubuntu.

I can view a log file that tells me what did I just installed with that command, this is in:


That is a log file that tells me what is just installed in the PC, but I want to know if exists a log file that can tell me what files I have downloaded when trying to install any file or package with the "apt-get install" command.

Thank you
