Problem with Package Management list

Hi All, 

My applicaton-list is not uptodate, while my friends application-list is updated,
Now the problem is that we cann't exchange packages.

I cann't install man-pages, samba server etc, while he cann't install the version of kdevelop that i h'v.
instead package management ask for downloading from internet and not from /var/cache/apt/archive.

This means if i download a application, save its .deb files, uninstall it, and then after updating my application-list from internet i can never reintall that same application from local media if it's higher version is available.

This is wrong, cann't i reinstall my favourate old version application via command line with all of its dependencies or NOT (ie i always h'v to download it from internet again and again) ????
