Yes, it will.  Release is not queued until Release.gpg has been attempted,
and Packages and Sources are not queued until Release has been attempted.
If you use the method described in "Using APT Offline" (in apt-doc), rather
than a hack based on apt-get --print-uris update, everything should work

For local repositories, Release isn't copied, and apparently gpgv doesn't
expect this.  -o Debug::Acquire::gpgv=yes should give some detail about
where it's going wrong.
