debget - Fetch a .deb for a package in APT’s database
debget package [package ...]
debget fetches a .deb for one or more packages from an Debian mirror.
It uses apt-get(1) to find out the URL so it will download the same
version from the same server as apt-get would do. The .deb will be
downloaded with curl(1) and stored in your current working directory.
debget will not work for packages that are available in apt-get’s
cache. If you need that functionality please use the .download option
