Not sure why exactly you want to do this, but it can be done easily in the terminal.

apt-get -d install <package>

Will download a package (and dependencies) and store them locally without installing. When you want to install, run the same command without the "-d" option, and the package will install from the local copy.

because as my internet connection is not fast, if i need to install some packages several times (in case of flashing my eMMC again, or if i have several boards) i do not want to loose the download time x times. This is why, downloading packages and put them on an external support (like usb storage ) seems to me an interesting method. thanks for the code.
