Well, the packages file is constructed for an archive directory structure
that you have not duplicated. If you have all of the .deb files in one
directory, and you wish to install them all, you can do this with
something like:

	dpkg -iR /pathtopackages/*.deb

(It may work without the *.deb, but I have never actually tried it this
way, so you may need to experiment with the proper command line.)
