If you know a little bit perl you can modify debmirror for this (or
file a wishlist bug). Instead of downloading make it print what it
wants to download into a script and then wget/curl those files where
you do have access.
Alternatively you could modify reprepro.
Both would work best if you have a little internet access to at least
update the Packages.gz files. Otherwise you will allways need 2 round
trips, one for Packages.gz, the other for debs.
If you only want to update a system there is also apt-zip. You can
probably run apt-zip on multiple systems and combine the output too.
