comment download packages for different distribution with apt
@vonbrand Once the system will be stable, there will be no future problems. And the machine is virtual, so going back if I fail is a piece of cake. And the whole dependency tree is exactly what i have in mind. Perhaps I'll skip the most basic packages that comes with the distribution, and if it fails, download the whole full dependency tree.

@Shadur Yep, I know that APT is a package manager. Nevertheless I want to use it as a download manager in this specific situation. Unless there's a tool which downloads dependency trees. I know none, and it seems that APT can do it fairly well with the right configuration. So be it.

comment download packages for different distribution with apt
The linux machines are testing models for my company's apps. We wish for maximum compatibility in different configurations and distributions, and that's why we need to setup somehow old end-of-life releases.

However if I'm using the mechanism only for downloading and not installing, there should be no problem.
