Does apt-get actually download a package of which the same version is
already installed?

Also what happens if you have a local apt repository with all your
selfbuild packages in it? Apt-get would get multiple entries for one
package with the same version. Which one would it use? The first? The
last? The most recent?

May the Source be with you.
