Member since:

If you get the error you have the deb already. It will be in /var/cache/apt/archives/packagename_version_arch.deb, so you can normally just say dpkg -i --force-depends /var/cache/apt/archives/packagename*deb since you are not likely to have more than one version (especially if you auto prune).

If the dependencies are failing, the package isn't downloaded to cache at all. Only errors in the packages themselves are solved by this approach.
