The broken packages would be there if the folder was not cleaned first, 
meaning all older versions of the files removed...it does happen that 
older packages are then installed and newer dependencies and the other 
way round, could become quite hectic to sort that mess afterwards... :) 
what also happens is that some dependencies might get left behind when 
making the copy of the folder. I don't think dpkg are set up to check 
for and download dependencies by default.

  When working on a computer you have to know enough:
  To fake what you don't know.
  Google what you can't fake.
  How (and when) to 'motivate' the computer to do what Google won't tell.
