Doing "apt-get clean" will clean up the packages cache.

I think you can use apt-move, mkisofs and cdrecord to save the packages to a CDROM with the structure required to make the packages easily installable.

You could then reformat and reinstall.

If an important package from the old apt cache is corrupt, and you install it again, the problems may recur.
